The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is looking into allegations that members of the Birmingham Police Department beat a suspect.

On March 20, 29-year-old Travarious Daniel was arrested across the street from the Birmingham Police Department.

In this video you can see several officers pile on Daniel and apparently beat him. The police report states they used minimum force to subdue Daniel, who was allegedly seen stealing property from a vehicle.

The arresting officer is currently on leave while Internal Affairs and ABI investigate.

    WELL IF IT IS ON VIDEO IT WILL HELP THE INVESTIGATION. MY QUESTION IS , WAS PHYSICAL BEATING NECESSARY FOR THE APPREHENSION OR IS THE BPD POLICY TO USE PHYSICAL FORCE?. GUYS THIS HAPPENED IN FRONT OF THE POLICE STATION AND THOSE IDIOTS COPS CAN'T SAY THAT THEY DID IT FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY. EVEN IF I WAS A RETARDED PERSON I WOULD THINK THAT THIS IS WRONG FOR THOSE UNPROFESSIONAL COPS TO DO. I WOULD THINK THAT THE COP INVOLVED AND THOSE AROUND IT SHOULD BE CHARGED FOR EXCESSIVE POLICE BRUTALITY. LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING. IF YOU ARE WITH SOMEBODY THAT USE DRUGS AND HAVE IT IN THEIR POSSESION GET ARRESTED, AND ALSO YOU WILL BE ARRESTED FOR ASSOCIATION. SHOULD THIS LAW BE APPLIED TO THOSE COPS THAT WERE AROUND WATCHING AND JOINED?. YOU BET. IT SHOULD!!!!!

    I never could see the video, all I could hear was someone at W.T.V.Y. using the bathroom.You could hear them getting paper then you can hear the toilet flush.It was all so very STRANGE.

    that's got to hurt. could result in major brain damage for him. Pity no lawyer will ever be able to prove since he couldn't be too bright to begin with if he's robbing cars across from the police station.

      Travarious didn't deserve this whatsoever & justice will be served! Think before you start talking about something that you have absolutely no knowledge about. How do you know whether he is "bright" or not? We don't need your pity and it will be easily proven that excessive force was used since we have it on video!!!

        Well sis, he robbed a car right across the street from the police station,does that sound like someone smart and intelligent to you ? HE didn't deserve a beat down. Maybe he can be awarded money for damages he probably has because of the beat down he recieved.
