 A police officer has been put on desk duty after video emerged of him body-slamming a man to the ground during an arrest  The clip taken by a taxi passenger shows the Chicago policeman wrapping his arm around the man’s torso, picking him up and throwing him to the ground next to a bus stop at the city’s South Side  The man, identified as 29-year-old Bernard Kersh by the police, hit his head at the kerb and remained motionless after the takedown  The 43-second clip, which looks like something from a WWE wrestling match, has been circulating on social media since Thursday  Web users have condemned the officer for unnecessary use of force.  Chicago Police explained the incident happened when officers in an unmarked vehicle saw the man drinking alcohol at the covered bus stop  The statement read: “The offender became irate and licked the face of an officer and verbally threatened the officer  “Shortly after, the offender then spit in the same officer’s eye and mouth.  “The officer then performed an emergency take down, taking the offender to the ground ”  Kersh was taken to University of Chicago Medical Centre by paramedics in stable condition  He was later charged with aggravated battery of a police officer, drinking alcohol in public and resisting police  The clip has brought attention to Rev Jesse L. Jackson Sr. who attended to Kersh’s bond hearing at a Cook County courthouse, as he said: “Unnecessary force could have cracked his skull  “It raises alarm. No one deserves this kind of treatment.”  The officer has been assigned to desk duty and will have his gun and badge taken away while the Chicago Office of Police Accountability completes a review of the incident, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted Friday  A police statement added: “If wrongdoing is discovered, officers will be held accountable ”  Mayor Lori Lightfood said: “It is my expectation that the investigation will be comprehensive and expedited so that the pubic may gain a complete picture of what happened ”
