Officers in Lansing, Michigan, were placed on leave after video appeared on social media showing them striking a 16-year-old girl, reports WILX.

The officers approached a home where they suspected the girl and a 14-year-old boy — wanted on probation violations, escape from custody, and runaway warrants — were staying, police said.

The teens tried to flee, but were captured soon after. After the girl resisted being put into a police car, video shows an officer beat her on the leg.

“Police officers used a training technique, what we call a strike to her thigh … as a distraction, in order for her to remove her leg from outside of the vehicle,” he said.
