Detroit police released a second video clip Monday evening related to accusations of excessive force that shows the man who was punched by an officer so hard he was knocked to the ground had been in a skirmish with police moments before.

"It appears in this video — the cops attempted to break up a fight — and this guy was trying to get involved," Detroit Police Second Deputy Chief Rudy Harper said. "He may have been trying to escalate it and may have even assaulted a cop."
