A Sarasota, Florida, police officer is under investigation after tossing peanuts toward a homeless man in custody.
The video shows Officer Andrew Halpin tossing the food at Randy Miller, who then gets on the ground to eat it. Then, there's what sounds like laughing in the background from the other officers watching.
The Herald-Tribune reports Miller was treated like an "animal." A source told the outlet Halpin gave Miller "dog commands" during the incident.
