The body cam footage came from Dayton, Ohio in September when police stopped Clifford Owensby and asked him to get out of his car so they could search it for drugs.

The 39-year-old refused, insisting he couldn’t use his legs, but officials insisted he get out anyway before pulling his hair and arms out of the car.

Mr. Owensby can be heard in the video in which an officer is asked to call a “white shirt”, which means a superior.

“Here’s the thing, I’ll pull you out and then I’ll call a white shirt,” said one officer in response.

“You can cooperate and get out of the car, or I can drag you out of the car. Do you see your two options here? “

Mayor of Dayton Nan Waly described the footage as “very worrying”.
