VICTORIA -- The public hearing into the use of excessive force by two Victoria Police officers continued Wednesday.

On March 21st 2010, Constables Chris Bowser and Brendan Robinson were seen on video trying to bring peace to a bar fight outside the Social Club in downtown Victoria.

A public hearing is trying to determine whether the constables used excessive force in arresting, then 18-year-old, Tyler Archer.

In Wednesday's testimony, Constable Robinson recalled witnessing a large fight between seven to 10 men outside the club. He told the hearing one man was on the ground, receiving foot stomps to the face. Robinson says he remembered thinking he was witnessing a homicide.

Robinson also told the hearing he felt Tyler Archer was arguing with police.

When Constable Bowser ordered Tyler Archer to "get on the ground", Robinson felt Archer was defiant. Instead of lying on the ground, Archer sat on his bottom.

Since joining the Victoria Police Department in 2008, Robinson testified Archer is the only person he's seen sit on the ground after being ordered to "get on the ground".

Three previous investigations have already cleared the officers.
