PHILADELPHIA — Did cops use too much force in teen's arrest? That's the question at the heart of an Internal Affairs investigation that city police launched over a violent, videotaped arrest of an 18-year-old youth in Frankford this week.

At least two witnesses recorded footage that shows four cops from Northeast Philadelphia's 15th District struggling with Marcus Warryton on Ruan Street near Paul shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, moments after cops say Warryton crashed his car and attempted to leave the scene.

One officer is shown striking Warryton numerous times in the head, including once while he's on the ground.
