Police in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, were caught on cell phone and surveillance videos (below) cursing, using a Taser and swinging a nightstick on at least one University of Alabama student and arresting others during a chaotic scene in the early morning hours of Nov. 8.
In the beginning of the cell phone video, an unidentified officer says he is placing a male student under arrest for harassment for grabbing his arm, notes The Free Thought Project.
However, the students claim their rights are being infringed upon, demand to see a warrant and refuse to allow the cop to take their friend from the apartment.
Moments later, several police officers rush into the apartment, forcefully pull some of the students out and throw them on the ground.
One officer drops the F-bomb twice on the hysterical students inside the apartment.
"They had a girl and two boys on the ground,'' one witness told AL.com. "They were all screaming and everybody was videoing it. "
The cops were reportedly with the Tuscaloosa police and the University of Alabama police departments.
The Tuscaloosa Police Department said in a statement to the news site: "A full investigation of the circumstances that are depicted in these videos will be conducted and all appropriate measures taken to ensure the integrity of the Tuscaloosa Police Department in serving the citizens of Tuscaloosa."
University Of Alabama officials added in a separate statement: "We can confirm that three UAPD officers responded to a TPD officer's call for emergency assistance that morning, and we are reviewing their actions to verify they acted appropriately."
