A high-speed car chase in California ended up with a police officer caught on tape brutally beating an unarmed Black man at the conclusion of the pursuit. The chase took place in the San Gabriel Valley Thursday (Oct. 15) morning and ended with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies beating down the burglary suspect.

KTLA reported on the chase and the deputies pummeling blows on the suspect, who has not yet been named. It appears that after a report of a possible residential burglary, officers from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department gave chase and even ended up crashing a vehicle into a tree in the intense pursuit.

More from KTLA:

The chase proceeded westbound on the 210 Freeway, moving at high speeds, according to Officer Monica Posada with the California Highway Patrol, which assisted the Sheriff’s Department.

When the chase of the 1996 Lincoln coupe ended on Paloma Street at Palo Verde Avenue in Pasadena about 11:30 a.m., at least one deputy could be seen pummeling a man who was lying in the roadway.

The man was lying down on his stomach with his hands behind his back as one deputy appeared to hold a firearm pointed at him, while another deputy approached and seemed to knee the man.

The two deputies then crouched next to the man, and one of them began punching him with his right arm. The two deputies seemed to struggle on top of the man as the punching continued.

At least 15 punches appeared to be thrown. The deputy appeared to also knee the man in the head twice.

The man was taken away in a stretcher and it was reported that at least two other suspects were also taken into custody. According to a statement from authorities, there was more than one suspect involved in what they named as a violent criminal act.
