Body camera footage showed Officer John Haubert striking a compliant Kyle Vinson, a Black man he was trying to arrest.

Two police officers have been arrested after one beat Vinson with his service-issued weapon, and the second is accused of failing to intervene.

The incident, captured on a body camera, happened Friday in Aurora, Colorado when Officer John Haubert pistol-whipped Kyle Vinson, a 29-year-old man he was trying to take into custody. Haubert also choked Vinson and threatened to kill him.

His partner, Officer Francine Martinez, was charged with failing to intervene and report the use of force by a peace officer. “We’re disgusted. We’re angry. This is not police work,” Aurora Police Chief Vanessa Wilson said Tuesday at a news conference announcing the charges. “We don’t train this. It is not acceptable.”
