Cell Phone Video Shows Police Beating Of Student

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A San Jose police spokesman says officers are being investigated for possible criminal conduct after officials viewed a video that shows an unarmed university student repeatedly being hit with batons and a Taser gun.

The cell phone video shows one officer hitting 20-year-old Phuong Ho with a metal baton more than 10 times.

Another officer is seen using his Taser gun on the San Jose State math major.

The San Jose Mercury News posted the video on its Web site Saturday night.

Several police experts told the paper the video shows the officers using excessive and possibly illegal force.

Ho was arrested in the incident last month on suspicion of assaulting another of his roommates.

He was not armed when police arrived.
