Columbus police officials have temporarily reassigned an officer shown in an online video kicking a handcuffed suspect in the head Saturday morning.

Zachary Rosen is under investigation for the incident that started on Maize Road and ended on Weldon Avenue. Officials say he was one of the officers responding to a report of a man with a gun. The video shows Demarko Anderson on the ground with an officer on top of him. Another officer comes from outside of the frame and kicks Anderson in the face.

Rosen was one of the officers involved in the shooting death of Henry Green last year. A grand jury recently declined to indict Rosen and fellow officer Jason Bare for the shooting. The video is posted on YouTube.
