Four officers with the Trois-Rivieres Municipal Police force in Quebec have been suspended following a forceful arrest earlier this month.

The incident was caught on surveillance video.

You can see the suspect lying face down in the snow with his arms out to the side.

Then, it appears that the officers beat and kick the suspect while he is on the ground.

In their report, the officers say the suspect was armed and they feared their lives were in danger.
