Police have released footage of the moment a demonstrator was struck in the groin by a non-lethal round during a protest in Hollywood, California, on June 2.
This footage, shared by the Los Angeles Police Department on September 18, shows body camera footage of the incident in which an officer fires a foam projectile that strikes a man’s groin.
Police said they launched an investigation into the incident after a Los Angeles Times report identified the man who was struck.
In an Instagram post, the 28-year-old said he had to have emergency surgery to save one of his testicles after it swelled to “at least twice the normal size” following the June 2 incident.
