Sky News US is reporting that video footage has surfaced of a uniformed police officer shoving a wheelchair-bound paralyzed man off the curb and into the road. Only the seat belt attached to the chair stopped the man from falling out.
Devaughn Frierson had approached a group of police officers before the incident took place. The officer who pushed the wheelchair into the road has not been named but can be heard complaining that the wheelchair ran over his foot.
Authorities have said they will investigate the incident that happened in Visitacion Valley, San Francisco. Frierson decided to intervene when one of his family was placed in handcuffs by the police.
