The Baltimore State's Attorney's Office is reviewing the actions from a police officer in a 2016 arrest after a 45-second video of the incident surfaced. The video showed a Baltimore police officer kneeling on a man lying on the ground, then pulling out his gun and holding it by his side, over the man's head and telling bystanders to back off. Attorneys say that the same officer has been named in another high-profile excessive force case that involved the in-custody death of Tyrone West in 2013, the officer is being identified as Jorge Omar Bernardez-Ruiz. Baltimore police have not publicly identified the officer and are launching an internal investigation.
