A White cop has been arrested after bodycam footage emerged of him using a taser while kneeling on a black man.

The policeman in Virginia has been charged with assault after he was seen using “unacceptable” force on the man who appears to be disorientated and screams “I can’t breathe”.

Fairfax County Police Department issued the shocking footage on Saturday which showed Officer Tyler Timberlake making an arrest.

It is the latest incident in a number of allegations of police brutality following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis while he was in police custody.

The latest footage shows a Fairfax cop talking to an unidentified man who appears to be disorientated in a residential street.

The man does not appear to react violently or make any threats to the cop.

Emergency vehicles are seen parked nearby and the man is asked if he needs oxygen.

One EMT says: “I’m here to help you, just tell me what you need.”

Then Timberlake arrives in a cruiser and approaches the man.

He then appears to use a stun gun, without giving a warning, causing the man to fall to the ground and scream out in pain.
