Footage has been released of a 15-year-old girl being subjected to a vicious assault in a US police cell. The surveillance camera footage shows a sheriff's deputy kicking the girl and pushing her back towards the wall.
It then shows him slamming her to the floor by grabbing her hair.
The man then appears to punch the prisoner in the head.
After being handcuffed, the deputy can be seen picking up the girl by her hair and taking her out of the cell.
Officers claim the girl called them "fat pigs" and other obscenities.
Court documents say moments after the incident, the teen complained about having trouble breathing and paramedics were called in.
The teen was checked out, but was not taken to a hospital.
The video of the incident was released by prosecutors in the US city of Seattle.
A 31-year-old officer, Deputy Paul Schene, has pleaded not guilty to assault.
The incident, last November, happened after the girl was brought in during an investigation into vehicle theft, according to court documents.
