The car can be seen entering the man, who is thrown onto the hood for a few seconds, before hitting the ground.

Six police officers can then be seen pinning the man, who is bipolar, to the ground around 4:10 p.m.

It is alleged that one of the police officers then kicked him in the face.

The father reportedly waited for a mental health bed at the North Hospital, but decided to leave after waiting more than a day in the emergency room.



Police appear to be restraining the man during his arrest

Hospital staff called the police to take him back, but the violent arrest proceeded and he had to be placed in an induced coma.

The man’s father, Glen, told 9News he was devastated by the incident as his son suffered from bipolar disorder.

He told reporters that officers “could have killed him.” It’s disgusting. ”

Papa Glen said the family were not allowed to see his son and that it will take days for doctors to determine if he has suffered permanent brain damage.
