SKOKIE, Ill. - A police officer is in trouble after a video shows what the victim alleges is police brutality.

Now the police officer from Skokie, Ill. has been charged with felony aggravated battery, and other charges.

The video shows 19-year veteran police officer Michael Hart forcing a drunken driving suspect into a cell, where she hit her head on a metal bench.

The inmate needed facial reconstructive surgery after the incident.

Officer Hart has pleaded not guilty to his charges, and his attorney believes the video will actually help his case.
