MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan said today he will ask the FBI to investigate an incident in which a squad car video captured police punching and kicking a man as they tried to arrest him in February after a stop for speeding.

"The kicking is troubling to me," Dolan said after watching the video early today. "The public will want an investigation."
Jenkins was stopped by Minneapolis police at 3 a.m. Feb. 19 on Penn Avenue N. for allegedly going 15 miles per hour over the speed limit.
