If things don't work out for him, the Toronto Police and OPP are always hiring. The running hockey puncher.

Kelowna RCMP have launched an internal investigation into the actions of an officer who appears to repeatedly punch a suspect while the man is being restrained by two other officers.

A 12-second video shows a portion of a Saturday night arrest after police allegedly responded to a report of an intoxicated man who was found inside a vehicle.

Kelowna RCMP Supt. Brent Mundle said during a news conference that the man was unco-operative and struggled with two officers as they attempted to arrest him.

Mundle said the suspect clenched his fists and refused to co-operate with the officers, so they called a third officer for backup.

The video captures the third officer arriving in a police vehicle and running to where the man is struggling with the two officers.

The officer — whose identity has not been released — immediately appears to start punching the suspect in the head.

Looks bad, but cannot say, so I maybe jaded. At least he only beat the guy in the face, while two officers held him, instead of holding him down squatting on his back and neck, while 3 other officers and a crowd of people watched until he was dead.

Of course, I'm not comparing the two. I just wonder if this is the training they get when dealing with drunks.
