This is the moment an autistic man was slammed to the ground by a police officer just two days before he died.

Shocking CCTV footage has been released showing the moment David Levi Dehmann was grabbed by Deputy Chase Wright, picked up and thrown to the floor.

According to police reports, 33-year-old Mr Dehmann, who suffers from autism and Tourette’s Syndrome his family claim, was arrested for disorderly conduct on April 21 in Mount Vernon, Ohio.
