Disturbing video has surfaced of police officers throwing a man into a wall, then macing him after the stumbles to the ground in a disorientated stupor. The cop who maced the man gets a big smile on his face, then the cops together are seen laughing as the man is lying on the ground maced with his face and head smashed up. The victim said he had brain injuries, chipped teeth, and was left with a permanent lump on the back of his head from the assault. Nothing happened to the police involved as the man says he couldn't find his lawyer who had the video for two years.
After posting the video to YouTube the officers involved were just put on paid leave. The police chief said they were not aware of the incident until the video was posted to YouTube, but they're conducting an "investigation."
Here's the victim, Michael Bergeron, Jr.'s account of what happened as posted to YouTube:
"charged with a dwi and tried explaining that I wasn't drunk and they could be out catching actual criminals. then after being in the cell for a while waiing for a bail bonds man I was taken out and brought in the booking room to call for a ride. after calling a ride I was told I could take my phone that I called from and my wallet. as soon as I greabbed my wallet from the table he officer with the glasses came at me saying he never told me I could take my stuff and choked me against the wall then tried to grab the wallet from my pocket. once he got the wallet and my phone this is what happened. there was no lawsuit made due to the fact I found a lawyer and the lawyer took the tapes and disappeared for 2 years until I finally tracked him down and go it back but now I think its to late to do anything with it even though I have a permanent lump on the back of my head chipped teeth and brain injuries but talking to a lawyer soon well see what happens."_
