Philadelphia police investigate video of officer fighting teen

Philadelphia police are looking into two videos posted on social media that show an officer fighting a teenage girl while breaking up a brawl in the city’s southwest side.

Officers were dispatched to the intersection of 54th Street and Springfield Avenue just before 4 p.m. on Monday after two families reportedly gathered at the location to fight.

Witnesses began recording as police arrived to the scene and attempted to get the brawling families to break it up.
