Chicago officer investigated after video shows him body-slamming man


A brief video shows the moment a Chicago police officer slammed a 29-year-old man to the ground, but does not show what led up to the incident. The officer is now being investigated, but police say he was performing an “emergency takedown” after the man verbally threatened him, licked his face and spit in his eyes.
