Florida man Charles Kinsey claims he was shot in the leg by police while lying on the ground with his hands in the air. And now, local news station WSVN is airing cell phone footage, which seems to back up Kinsey's claims.
Kinsey told WSVN: "When he shot me, it was so surprising. It was like a mosquito bite."
The cell phone video doesn't show the actual shooting, but it captures Kinsey lying down, arms in the air, telling the officers there is no need for lethal force. He also tries to calm his patient down, and tells the officers he is a behavioral therapist.
