Sorry, this video is no longer available

Two Richfield, Minnesota police officers are in some hot water after a video posted online appears to show one officer pushing and hitting a teen.

The video shows a confrontation between a group of teens and a Richfield officer after a traffic stop.

The confrontation was recorded after the officer started getting agitated.

Richfield police tell us they got a call about a ‘suspicious person’ in the park.

It’s unclear what lead to a heated situation.

“I think the boy should file a lawsuit and the officer I think should no longer be an officer.. should be fired.  This just can’t keep happening every day,” says Mohamad Hayir
Two officers have been placed on leave.

To avoid a conflict of interest, Richfield police have asked the Minnesota BCA to conduct an independent investigation.
