Springfield police Monday released body camera footage of an altercation last month that led to an officer being charged with battery and official misconduct.
The videos, taken from the body cameras of Samuel A. Rosario and a second officer, shows the 32-year-old Rosario punching a 19-year-old man at least 11 times while they're on the ground.
The videos also show Rosario taunting the man, as well as a lengthy exchange that included the two men yelling racial slurs and obscenities at one another before Rosario initiates the fight.
According to police, the 19-year-old man -- who was not charged and has not been identified -- was at a home in the 2100 block of East Stuart Street when Rosario responded to a report of a domestic disturbance the night of Feb. 27.
The video showed Rosario talking to a woman on the doorstep of her home about an incident involving her daughter when the 19-year-old man interjected.
