Police fire 2 officers they say assaulted man

Demetrius Hollins a 21-year-old Georgia college student is seen on cell phone video being beaten by two Georgia police officers says he thought he was going to die during the traffic stop

Demetrius Hollins told NBC's "Today" show on Friday that the prior incident spurred him to try to record Wednesday's traffic stop by Gwinnett County cops near Atlanta.

The incident was captured on cellphone video by a witness stuck behind the stopped auto and the police vehicle.

Two white police officers in Gwinnett County, Georgia, were kicked off the force Thursday, after videos surfaced showing them beating a black motorist during a Wednesday traffic stop, CNN reported. The officer said he recognized Hollins from a auto stop and arrest past year for possessing marijuana and a loaded gun, and called for backup. Another video showed McDonald, who arrived as backup after Hollins was handcuffed and lying on the ground, immediately stomping on Hollins' head. The video was captured on a cell phone by a witness in traffic.

"The revelations uncovered in this entire investigation are shocking", Washington said.

Ayers and the rest of the command staff fired McDonald Thursday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the video was taken. "Butch" Ayers said the video disturbed him.

The video then shows both cops - who are white - holding the man down before hauling him into their waiting police auto. As Attorney General Jeff Sessions moves to de-emphasize reform that might address the issue of police brutality, it's unlikely the picture will become clearer anytime soon.

In this undated Gwinnett County Police Department photo, Sgt. Michael Bongiovanni poses for an official portrait. Michele Pihera said in an email. Both Hollins and his mother, Tamara Crenshaw, will be in attendance. In August, he pulled the Acura over after running the tag and discovering the car's registration was suspended.

In 2002, a white woman who was in a vehicle with her black boyfriend accused Bongiovanni of fondling her inner thigh with the inside of his hand during a stop frisk, pulling the elastic band on the back of her sweatpants, and breaking a purse during a search.

The driver, Demetrius Bryan Hollins, did not have a license plate and changed lanes multiple times without signaling, according to an incident report. That's when the officer ordered Hollins out of the auto, and a brief struggle reportedly ensued. McDonald then enters the video and stomps on Hollins, who by then is handcuffed.

Hollins is attending college and says he wants to become a film producer.

The officer then realized he had arrested Hollins in August 2016 for having marijuana and a loaded gun in the vehicle. Hollins was acting odd and started yelling "I need my mom", Bongiovanni wrote in the report. That triggered Bongiovanni's memory of the August arrest, and he made a decision to call for backup, according to the report.

Bongiovanni eventually Tasered Hollins, pinned him on the ground and handcuffed him. The warrant further states that Hollins "did physically resist arrest". He was released on bond on Thursday. Hollins was handcuffed and on his stomach when he was struck. Hollins had a bloody lip and nose. He then helped the other officer load Hollins into a police vehicle.

Eyewitness, Kenneth Dillard, shot the first video that surfaced and said he was shocked by what he witnessed.

Then Bongiovanni punched him in the face.

A prosecutor in Georgia has dismissed dozens of cases involving two former officers fired in a police brutality case.
