Dramatic video has revealed the moment a corrections officer smacked a suspect's head against a brick wall - leaving him with a bloody injury that needed stitches.
Officer Charles Broaderick, 41, was arrested, charged with assault and locked up for just 13 minutes following the attack on James Duckworth at the Marion County Jail in Florida on October 8.
Broaderick and two other officers questioning Duckworth, who had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, claimed after the incident that the had been combative and needed to be restrained.
But the newly-released video reveals that Duckworth was not combative and even complimented an officer, calling him 'a gentleman', before the attack, WKMG reported.
Broaderick can be heard telling him: 'You're being treated how you're acting. You're acting like an [expletive], you're being treated as an [expletive].'
Duckworth is then seen making a spitting noise as he attempts to clear something from his lips.
'You don't spit at officers,' Broaderick yells.
He grabs Duckworth's head and slams it against the wall as the other officers help him hold the man. Broaderick can be seen pinning Duckworth's head against the wall as their questions continue.
