NYPD Cop Gets Desk Duty After Allegedly Stomping Pot Suspect's Head

The video above shows Brooklyn police arresting Jahmil-El Cuffee in Bed Stuy last week, after Cuffee allegedly rolled a joint in public. At about 1:40, with Cuffee held down on the ground by several cops, officer Joel Edouard delivers what looks an awful lot like a swift boot to the side of his head. Edouard was ordered to turn in his gun and badge and placed on desk duty pending an internal investigation after the incident, the New York Daily News reports.

Cuffee was treated for head and neck injuries and charged with marijuana possession, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
