An Alabama police officer has been placed on leave after a video showing her using a stun gun on a man in handcuffs went viral on social media. 

The video starts with a handcuffed Black man lying in the street as an officer with the Reform Police Department tells him to stand up. The unnamed officer then walks the man over to lie face-first on the hood of a car.

“Stay still,” the officer says as she pushes him against the hood and holds the stun gun to his back.

“I ain’t doing s—, bro,” the man says. “I got a gun right there.”

The officer is then seen removing the gun from the man’s pants pocket, laughing and saying, “Oh yeah!”

“What you saying, ‘Oh, yeah’ for?” the man says.

At that point, the officer pulls the trigger on the stun gun yelling, “Shut the f— up.”

The handcuffed man is then seen crying: “OK, OK, OK,” he says. “Oh my God.”

“You want it again?” the officer pushes as the man continues to cry. “Shut the f— up. You was big and bad, shut your b—- a– up.”
