An NYPD officer slammed a man headfirst onto the sidewalk outside an Upper East Side Mexican restaurant.
The video shows two officers struggle with a man outside the Second Avenue restaurant, Mexicoma, around 10:15pm.
One of the cops grabs the man, lifts him off the ground and slams him headfirst on the sidewalk.
A spokeswoman for the department said the man, whose name was not released, was causing a disturbance and refused to hand over his ID.
“Officers attempted to restrain the male and he resisted arrest,” the spokeswoman said.
Cops issued the man a summons for an open container of alcohol.
