The LAPD on Monday was grappling with another controversial videotaped arrest, this one showing an officer shoving a handcuffed suspect into a patrol car, then leaning in with a can of pepper spray to douse the man's face before shutting the door.
The arrest occurred last year on the Venice boardwalk and was the subject of a lengthy LAPD investigation. But the tape was not revealed publicly until Monday by an attorney in an interview with The Times.
