A traffic stop turned into a brutal and bloody beating for 18 year old Marcus Warryton and it was all caught on tape. Warryton was apparently stopped by police for running a stop sign. Warryton is seen having a physical confrontation with two officers when two more officers then join in to help out and wrestle Warryton to the ground. One officer then strikes Warryton repeatedly with a baton. Another officer holds him down with his foot as Warryton bleeds heavily. Police claim Warryton resisted arrest after walking away from a car which he crashed. Police also say two officers suffered scratches and bruises to the face during the arrest. Warryton family believes he was pulled over for running a stop sign but say they are unsure of the specific charges against him. They also say Warrington is still in jail and being held on $150,000 bail. Warryton's girlfriend told NBC 10 he has a clean background and that he was driving her car the night of his arrest, which she gave him permission to do. Finally, the family claims Warryton was beaten to the point where he now has staples in his head. The four officers have been taken off street duty as internal affairs continue to investigate the incident, according to police.
