The YouTube video begins with 17-year-old Brady Becker being held down on the ground by a man who has his hand around the teen's throat. Moments later, the situation escalates when the man begins punching Becker in the face.
"I felt like I was in a life-threatening situation, because if this was some random guy off the street, with a gun beating me like that, he could have definitely taken my life," Becker said.
Becker said he was only defending his friend, 16-year-old Jacob Jensen, who was first approached by two unknown men, not identified as sheriff's deputies until after the altercation.
"I had no clue he was a cop, I thought this was some random guy, you know, waiving his gun at everybody," said Becker.
