WATCH: Five Cops Beat 23-Year-Old California Man While Dog Bites Him



Footage has surfaced of five police officers beating a 23-year-old man accused of stealing a car and leading cops on a chase.

Police in El Centro, California, were initially called to the 1200 Block of N. 18th St around 9.30am on Tuesday after a family reported their car had been stolen.
Later in the day, a member of the family spotted the Volkswagon nearby and again called 911.

Police located the vehicle but the driver, Elizardo Saenz, 23, refused to stop and gave chase.

Officials said that during the pursuit, Saenz drove through crowded parking lots at unsafe speeds before driving against traffic, causing several vehicles to pull off the road to avoid being struck, KYMA reported.

‘Put your baton away! You guys are f***ing ridiculous,’ the man yells out.
