The video was later shared to social media and went viral, with hundreds of comments questioning the conduct of the police officers involved.

The two men were arrested and later charged with theft, while the two-year-old girl and her one-year-old sibling, found still strapped into his vehicle seat, were taken home by their mother.

She eventually gets out of the truck and begins walking towards police with her hands raised, which police say was her "imitating" her parents.

The shocking video, which gained more than 425,000 views as of Sunday evening, showed several officers with the Tallahassee Police Department pointing their guns at a GMC pickup truck while one man walked towards the officers with his arms raised and another stayed in place with his arms over his head.

The tiny girl is shown with her hands in the air, likely mimicking her father, as she slowly approaches police.

Then, the little girl clambers out of a side door and approaches the cops, who still have their guns aimed.

'She's trying to get out but she can't because she's little, ' said the person filming the video.

The video, shot on a woman's phone as she watched the scene from her own auto, captured the moment the two-year-old clambered out of the family pick-up truck and walked towards police.

"The mom, who is a suspect, asks an officer to hold her two-year-old as she retrieves the infant from a vehicle seat".

"Are there any other adults in the auto?" an officer asks the man who'd just surrendered.

"No sir", the man replied.

"C'mon, sweetie, you're OK", the officer told the young girl.

In the body camera footage, an officer was seen assuring the toddler saying she was fine and asked her to put her hands down.

Chad M Bom and James W McMullen were taken into custody on shoplifting charges and police said a pellet gun was found in the back seat during a search of the truck.

Police allowed a woman, reported to be the child's mother, to hold her and the other child as they dealt with the situation.

Mr DeLeo said he was "proud" of the "concern and compassion" they showed, and said the perspective offered by the police clips "justify the investment in body-worn camera" and "the importance of all the facts".

Bom and McMullen have been charged with theft, according to WTXL.
