MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee police detective is accused of beating a man who was handcuffed. 

The detective is Rodolfo Gomez, Jr. He's been in trouble with the law before. Security cameras in a Milwaukee police station recorded Gomez interviewing a man suspected of killing a baby. 

During that interview, the suspect began yelling at Gomez. The video shows Gomez pushed the man into a wall, and punched him in the face - all while he was handcuffed.
