Purdue University police are reviewing a white cop’s actions after video emerged of him repeatedly punching a black student and pushing his head into the snow during an arrest.

Adonis Tuggle, 24, posted the footage captured Feb. 4 by a woman claiming to be his girlfriend, the Journal and Courier reported.

“Stop! You’re hurting me! You’ve been disrespectful the whole time, bro! You’re choking me!” he says in the viral clip recorded at the school in West Lafayette, Indiana.

University police Capt. Song Kang told the news outlet that officers were called to the scene at about 8:20 p.m. by someone who said it appeared a woman was being held against her will.

When Officer Jon Selke arrived, he separated Tuggle and the woman, but the student then refused to cooperate with his orders, Kang said, according to the outlet.
