Man Sues LAPD over Inexplicable Beating

An Echo Park man is suing the Los Angeles Police Department for assault and battery and false imprisonment after he claims a pair of officers used excessive force against him in October 2011.

On Wednesday, Bruce Faraon and his attorney released cell phone video of the incident. Faraon claims the officers repeatedly punched in him in the face and body, though the video does not clearly show the blows.

Faraon was walking home from work in Echo Park last year when he says the officers turned around their patrol car and ran after him with their guns drawn.
