FBI looking at video showing Missouri cop kicking suspect

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The FBI is looking at police dashcam video that shows a suburban St. Louis officer kicking in the head a suspect who had his hands up.

The officer works for the town of Woodson Terrace. The police chief in neighboring Velda City told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a dashcam inside one of his patrol cars captured the April 14 incident.

Woodson Terrace police didn’t immediately respond Thursday to a phone message.

Video posted by KMOV-TV shows an officer kicking 21-year-old Isaiah Forman while Forman is on the ground. Authorities say Forman was driving a stolen car that hit a St. Ann police officer’s car at the end of a chase. Police say the car was taken by another man in a carjacking.
