Video shows Sioux Falls police tackling man

SIOUX FALLS (AP) – Sioux Falls police are reviewing a videotaped encounter that shows officers tackling a man after he made an obscene gesture and shouted obscenities at them.

The video showing the man being arrested was uploaded to YouTube. The Argus Leader reports the video prompted numerous people to call police phone lines.

Police say the incident took place at the scene of a traffic accident investigation around 6 p.m. Friday. Police said in a news release they are "aware of a videoed encounter with officers" and the matter is being reviewed.

A police shift supervisor did not respond to a call Saturday.
