Seattle police have opened an internal investigation into an incident in which an officer slugged a man who was being questioned for leaving his car running outside a store

The Seattle Police Department opened an internal investigation Friday into the 2010 arrest of a 20-year-old man who was punched by an officer after police stopped to question him about leaving his car running outside a store.

Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said the department already has reviewed the incident twice, with the officer's commanders and an assistant chief concluding no violations of law or department policy occurred when four officers took Isaac Ocak to the pavement after learning he had a prior felony conviction and had been tagged in the department's computer as being "assaultive to officers."

At the time, Ocak was being questioned and was not under arrest, according to police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb.  Full Article
