KANSAS CITY, Mo. - This video shot by a fan shows a battle between Kansas City police and what they say was a drunk fan.
Police reports show that before this cell phone camera was rolling, 28-year-old Trenton Karlin had kicked one of the officers in the groin, cursed at them and even left cuts on another officer's head.
The man was stunned more than once with a stun gun in the lower left side of his back.
According to the police report,
41 Action News took the video to retired FBI agent Michael Tabman
"It doesn't seem they are trying to punish the individual with the pain, they were just trying to get him to comply with orders to be arrested and removed from the scene," Tabman said.
Tabman showed us what officers will do before they use a weapon.
But this doesn't always work, and in the video it looks like one officer even hits Karlin in the face.
"Maybe not the best move, but certainly not indicative of an officer trying to inflict excessive force," Tabman said.
Tabman said officers will try to get the threat out of the area as quickly as possible.
"If you are being placed under arrest, comply, you will have many opportunities along the way to argue it," he said.
