    Off camera you can hear the person shooting the video saying this is unbelievable.

    At one point in the clip, you can hear Marrow saying I cant breathe, echoing the same unforgettable words as Eric Garner.

    In the original Facebook post, Marrow wrote what appears to be a detailed account. He wrote that the police officers claimed he had a gun in his pocket when it was reportedly his cellphone.

    During the arrest the police knocked my teeth out, slammed me on my head and choked me out until I was unconscious, Marrow posted, In addition I suffered a shoulder strain and a concussion along with the heartache of my Wife leaving me during this Very Hard time for my shortcomings and careless actions. This has affected me mentally and impacted my life in a way I cant even humanly describe. This isnt a cry for sympathy, I just need it to be known . . . My cry is for JUSTICE.

    Officers took Marrow into custody where he was charged with making terroristic threats-reckless driving and aggressive driving.
