Video, obtained by NBC 7, shows approximately five men in a circle. The men appear to be members of law enforcement, however their uniforms – and which agency they may represent – are not clear in the video.

The following day, San Diego Police Department Chief David Nisleit responded to questions and released additional footage. Read about the controversial footage here.
A driver who cut off another driver in the parking lot of an Arby’s restaurant was punched eight times when the pair came face-to-face inside the fast food location, San Diego police confirmed.
