A backup officer arrives just as Rosario begins to scuffle with the male knocking his own bodycam to the ground

Newly released police body camera footage from Springfield, Illinois, shows an officer punching a 19-year-old man almost a dozen times. He has been a sworn Springfield officer since April 2015.

Rosario's attorney Daniel Fultz said he was still viewing the video Monday.

"He has his limits, just like every other human being".

Authorities said the beating may have been provoked by a racial comment made by the teen when the officer was responding to a domestic disturbance on February 27th, 2017. "I know it's become the new national blood sport to criticize the police, but everybody has their limits, and he reached his".

Body camera video from another officer, who was not involved in the the altercation, shows Rosario punch the man several times. A second officer, Rosario's partner, intervened in the fight and later reported the incident to his supervisor, according to the department.

Rosario, 32, has been charged with two counts of battery and one count of official misconduct.

He remains on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal criminal investigation. "The officer's actions. We're taking this very seriously".
