INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

An Independence police officer is coming under criticism after he was caught lifting and slamming a young man on to his squad car. 

Corban Dyche, 18, said the incident happened at the Walmart on Bolger and 39th Street. 

It’s still hard for the young man’s mother to watch that video. 

She says her son was treated wrongly by the police officers and the situation could have been handled in a better manner.

Video captured the incident. Dyche, who is 5’5” and 103 pounds, is slammed onto the hood of a squad car. The exchange was caught on camera by Dyche’s friend, who was told to leave the property. 

Dyche’s mother posted the video on Facebook, along with photos of her son’s bruises.

“Excessive force for what…for what,” she said. 

Dyche says he was at the Walmart to pick up lotion for a new tattoo. He admits to giving the middle finger to the officer at the store. 

“I flipped him off because it’s the same officer that’s always there and he always assumes I’m stealing and I never steal,” Dyche said. 

The Independence Police Department says, “As in every use of force situation, the incident is under review.” 

The department did not go on camera with KCTV5. 

Corban said he was tased four times, something that wasn’t caught on camera.
