VIDEO: Chicago Officer on Desk Duty Over Use of Force

A Chicago police officer has been placed on desk duty after a video surfaced that appears to show the officer kicking a man in the head on Monday, reports WLS and the Associated Press.

The video is under investigation by the Independent Police Review Authority. Supt. Eddie Johnson made the decision to place the office on desk duty after a meeting Tuesday morning.

The suspect was arrested after officers chased him and found three bags of heroin on him Monday afternoon, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Charges are pending.

According to a police report, the man bit the officer on the right ring finger before he was handcuffed. Guglielmi said the officer was treated for the bite at a hospital

The Fraternal Order of Police said it disagrees with Johnson's decision to strip powers before IPRA has completed its investigation into the incident.
