A newly released video shows a police officer in Baltimore, Maryland, repeatedly punching a man on the street after what appears to be a brief exchange of words.

In the video, posted by the local ABC affiliate WMAR, a tall man wearing pink shorts is standing against a wall outside a building when he and the officer briefly exchange words.

The officer then begins punching him in the face repeatedly as another officer watches.

"What the f*ck bro?" someone says.

The second officer on the scene then makes a quick attempt to separate the two before giving up.

"I got all that, I got all that, don't worry about it," says a man behind the camera.
