The amateur video shows police struggling to arrest several men, when an officer appears to kick one man several times as he is held on the ground.
The same officer then turns and yells at a second man, kicks him and knees him as another officer holds the man down.
Police said the officers used pepper spray in an effort to disperse those involved and took six people into custody. A man found lying on the ground was taken to hospital with a head injury and was treated and released, police said.
None of the officers was injured and all six people taken into custody were released without charges, they said.
Victorias police chief plans to comment Wednesday on a YouTube video showing a uniformed officer repeatedly kicking and kneeing two suspects after a late-night brawl outside a downtown night club.
