Miami police taped roughing up suspect

MIAMI - A robbery suspect led police on a car chase Wednesday before crashing and taking off on foot, then was swarmed by officers who were videotaped kicking and punching him.

The Miami-Dade Police Department is reviewing the response, said Cmdr. Linda O'Brien.

"We are looking at this frame by frame," she said. "The initial assessment is that the officer acted inappropriately."

It was not clear which officer O'Brien was referring to, and the responding officers were not identified.

Police said that when officers tried to pull over a car matching the description of an armed robbery suspect's, the driver led them on a miles-long chase, weaving through traffic, crashing into a wall and fleeing on foot.

The tape, recorded by a TV news crew, showed officers pouncing on the suspect, with at least one punching him numerous times and another kicking him.
