Video: Off-duty cop, man tussle at Rockies game

Police are investigating an officer’s use of force after cell phone video of a confrontation at a baseball game went viral

DENVER — Police are investigating an officer’s use of force after cell phone video of a confrontation at a baseball game went viral.

According to the Denver Post, police Captain Joe Black placed 22-year-old Alex Buck in handcuffs after an altercation captured on video at Coors Field during a Colorado Rockies game.

Officials declined to comment on what led to the incident, but a Facebook post with a summary of the video claims police approached the group, including Buck, after suspecting them of underage drinking. The video begins mid-conversation between Buck and Black.

Buck is instructed to sit down multiple times and fails to do so before he is shoved by Black and then put in handcuffs.

Black was working as off-duty security when the incident occurred, according to the report.

The Denver Police Department sent out multiple tweets regarding the incident, saying Police Chief Robert White is “closely monitoring the investigation.”

Buck told the Denver Post he was not arrested or charged in the incident, but was ejected from the ball park.
