A dashboard cam caught the brutal beating of an Ohio police officer Wednesday who pulled a man over in connection with a hit and run.

Officer Jason Deaton was assaulted by Middletown resident Eric German who resisted arrest before turning on the officer and becoming combative.

In the video Officer Deaton is seen being tossed onto the hood of his patrol car and punched in the face while struggling to taze German.

When the officer finally does taze him, German is seen becoming even more enraged and continues to punch the officer in the face before putting him in a headlock.

Officer Deaton is finally saved when a second officer comes on the scene and tazes the man so they can take him into custody.

Deaton was taken to a local hospital for his injuries and will later have to have surgery to repair his face.
