Orlando police are going to have to answer questions after a video surfaced of a teen getting tossed to the ground and beat because he wanted to tape the altercation with police.

Cops reportedly detained three teenagers who were waiting for their Uber ride in a parking garage after a concert Sunday, accusing them of smelling like marijuana and requesting to search them, according to PINAC.

One of the teens pulled out a phone to record, which prompted Orlando police officer Michael Napolitano to try to rip it out of his hand.

Mario Manzi, 19, informed Napolitano that he had a right to record before handing the phone to his friend, Ryan Diaz, 19.
“Record this, record this,” Manzi tells Diaz.

But the cops turn on Diaz, who passes the phone back to Manzi, who, in turn, records the cops pouncing on Diaz, knocking him to the ground and punching him several times.
“Get on the ground, get on the ground!” a cop yells at Diaz, who is already on the ground.

After all the teens were searched, police discovered no marijuana, according to One92, a Central Florida website.

Diaz was still arrested on a charge of battery on a police officer, even though he was battered and bruised on camera.

Manzi and the other friend, Jazmin Ahmed, 19, were cited with trespassing, even though they were leaving a concert that they had just paid money to attend.
