Brown said his client faces charges for allegedly assaulting the officer in June, charges McGrier is contesting in court.

A Baltimore police officer who has not been officially identified has been put on paid leave after he was seen beating a man in a viral video clip.

What happened Saturday morning marks the latest controversial use of force against a black person by police. In the video, the officer, whose name has yet to be revealed, is seen pushing the unidentified man against a wall, and placing his hand on his chest, prompting the man's attempt to remove it.

Warren Brown, an attorney for the man who was knocked down, identified his client as Dashawn McGrier.

"The officer involved in yesterday's incident is no longer with the Baltimore Police Department".

The two were involved in another altercation earlier this year, which led to McGrier being charged with assaulting the officer, disorderly conduct, obstructing and hindering, and resisting arrest. So is another officer who witnessed the attack, but did little to intervene.

"I'm deeply disturbed by the video that surfaced online", interim Police Commissioner Garry Tuggle said in a statement Saturday.

Police told WBFF the 11:45 a.m. incident on Monument Street began when police asked McGrier for identification, which he refused to provide.

Smith said officers are required to fill out a contact sheet any time they talk to a citizen in relation to any type of investigation, no matter how brief the encounter.

"It seems like this officer had just decided that Dashawn was going to be his punching bag", Brown said.

"He knows his rights, and he felt as though his rights were being violated, and he took offense to that", one man said. Brown has not responded to CNN's request for comment. "Interim Commissioner Tuggle has accepted his resignation", the statement said. "I have zero tolerance for behavior like I witnessed on the video today". The city was placed under investigation following the death of Freddie Gray, who died after falling into a coma in a police van in 2015.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh also reacted to the video on Twitter nearly immediately. She said she has demanded answers and accountability for what happened Saturday.

"We are working day and night to bring about a new era of community-based, Constitutional policing and will not be deterred by this or any other instance that threatens our efforts to re-establish the trust of all citizens in the Baltimore Police Department", the mayor said.
