In the video, one of the officers can be seen on the ground. Bystanders can be heard yelling, some encouraging the violence and others saying to leave the officers alone.
Two of the cops were suffered only minor injuries and a third came away with a fractured eye socket.
The man who shot the video, Michael Price, handed it over to authorities on Thursday, hoping it could help identify the suspects.
“I didn’t find out until later today that it may be possibly a detective or an undercover police officer that was attacked,” he told KRISTV.com. “So that’s why I came forth and said, 'Hey, I’ve got this video that might be worth something.'”
One man, Kenneth Cleveland, 41, was arrested and faces multiple charges.
Price is taking the video to the Corpus Christi Police Department today.
