MILWAUKEE- Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn addressed some members of the media, including TODAY'S TMJ4, Thursday afternoon about the latest on the MPD investigation into a violent arrest of an OWI suspect last week.

According to TODAY'S TMJ4, Flynn said the department is taking these events very seriously and in doing that, it does take some time to investigate situations like this.

He said that cell phone video and You Tube video often does not look good, that their officers are justified in using force on occasion, and it doesn't look good when you see someone on the ground like that.

But he is saying that they need to take their time in investigating this incident.

TODAY'S TMJ4 reports that Chief Flynn didn't address questions about the officers involved being placed on administrative duty or what has happened internally to those officers.

TODAY'S TMJ4 will have more information about this interview on Live at 10.
