MONTREAL - Some amateur video shot on The Main has put the Montreal police in the spotlight again for its apparent use of excessive force.
Police were called to St-Laurent Blvd. near the corner of Prince Arthur St. late Wednesday night to deal with a case of public drunkenness.
Robert Bugeag was out that night, saw the commotion and began recording it with his mobile phone.
This blurry image from the video shows a police officer grabbing a woman just before she is pushed into a nearby bicycle post.
