Sacramento PD Releases Footage Of Idling Arrest

More questions are being raised about the arrest and violent take-down of a man who's crime was leaving his car idling while he went into a 7-11 store.

Although it is a violation of Sacramento city code to leave keys in a car with the engine idling, the Sacramento Chapter of the NAACP questions why Craig Williams, a black man, was thrown to the ground, handcuffed and taken to jail when confronted by a Sacramento police officer. 

The Facebook video has been viewed nearly 400,000 times since it was posted Saturday morning.

The NAACP is questioning the officer's conduct. Police are conducting an internal investigation.
