RCMP in Alberta used one of their vehicles to knock down a man who they believed to be carrying a firearm on a highway south of Edmonton on Friday before arresting him.

A video of the arrest was posted to social media and shows the RCMP vehicle striking the man twice from behind. After the man is hit the first time, someone can be heard yelling, “drop the gun!” The man then continues walking before being struck again before police officers and a police dog rush towards the man to take him into custody.

Police said the incident will be reviewed through an “RCMP internal review process” and not by the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team.

Sarah Komadina has more details but be warned, the video may be hard to watch.
