I was wondering about the need for the wheelchair myself, he stands up on his own so I'm guessing he was at least somewhat capable. Some places have a policy that all patients must leave or be transported by wheelchair after surgery for example, not out of necessity.
Doesn't excuse the cop's obvious over reaction but they guy deserved a little strong arm; not decked in the face 5 times though. Another example of don't fight cops. you might get unlucky and get the one who will take it too far!
