(PIX11) -- Yet another instance of alleged violent police misconduct has been caught on tape, this time, a 17-year-old appears to be knocked out cold by an off-duty cop.
The Daily News just released this video of a controversial arrest that actually happened back in June.
The kid in cuffs is 17-year-old Marcel Hammer.
According to the lawsuit his family just filed, he was smoking a cigarette when he was stopped by the off-duty officer.
That officer apparently thought Hammer was smoking pot, and words turned into a physical altercation.
Hammer was cuffed and punched in the head.
His friends can be heard screaming in the background "It was only a cigarette!"
The officer involved has been suspended from duty.
