Police in Allentown, Pennsylvania, are investigating video footage that appears to show an officer from the department kneeling on a man’s neck during an arrest on Saturday night.

The footage, shot by a passerby and shared on Facebook by the group Black Lives Matter to Lehigh Valley, shows three officers restraining the man outside of Sacred Heart Campus of St. Luke’s Hospital.

An officer in the 26-second clip is shown using his elbow to restrain the man before placing his knee on his neck, a maneuver reminiscent of the one that killed George Floyd in Minneapolis.

In a statement announcing the investigation, Allentown police said the man in the video was spotted by cops staggering and vomiting outside the hospital’s emergency room.

The officers, who had been at the hospital for an unrelated matter, tried to interact with the man, but he yelled and spit at them, police said.
