Newly released bodycam footage has revealed the shocking moment an Arizona police officer mocked an unarmed suspect as he lay bleeding on a hospital floor.

The footage captured an unidentified Mesa Police Department officer laughing as Jose Luis Conde, 23, was treated by hospital workers in a pool of his own blood.

Officer - Mock - Concern - Man - Man

'Awww,' the officer said in mock concern. 'You gotta be a man, man up,' he tells Conde.

'His quick, aggressive and violent action was indicative of someone launching an assault,' Harris wrote.

'I reacted to his body movement by grabbing a hold of his upper body, lifting him off the ground and taking him to the ground.'

Officer Joseph Mis also punched and elbowed Conde about four times while two other officers tried to pin him down and handcuff him, according to the police report.

Harris - Point - Conde - Body - Scuffle

Harris said at one point he grabbed Conde's body during the three-minute scuffle and claimed the man had 'lost his footing as we made contact with a brick wall'.
