For the second time in a week, Baltimore police are confronting a video that showed an officer using violent force during an arrest. The latest incident comes as city officials push for all officers to wear body cameras.

The latest incident happened early Tuesday outside a Greenmount Avenue nightclub. According to the Baltimore Sun, a group of five officers used batons and Tasers while arresting a man, Jamar Kennedy, outside Melba’s Place.
