Police officer pins down quadruple amputee, 15

An investigation is under way after a 15-year-old quadruple amputee was pinned down by a police officer in Arizona in the US.

Police were initially called to a disturbance in September after the 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, knocked a bin on the floor and began making verbal threats at a group home.

However, the eight-minute video shows a deputy fighting with the boy on a kitchen floor, and using his body to pin the teenager on his side.

After a couple of minutes, the police officer gets up and starts shouting at the boy filming the incident to “shut the hell up”, adding: “Am I talking to you? Am I your b***h?”

The officer then tells the boy he is also going to get arrested and, further on in the clip, two police officers are seen handcuffing him, and slamming his head into a wall after someone else began filming.
