There are claims of police brutality in Ohio, after a bloody incident involving two officers and a teenager was caught on tape.

It happened Friday in Toledo.

A police report says 14-year-old Trevor Casey got into a fight with the cops, after he refused to move from the front of a home where police say he was loitering.
