EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

It's a video that's making the rounds on social media.

Someone recorded an incident involving an arrest made by Evansville Police.

The video shot by Michael Fleming shows Issac Cosby being arrested in the 1000 block of Walnut Street early Sunday morning. Police say Cosby had two felony warrants and rumored to also have a gun.

When police handcuffed Cosby and tried to place him in the back of a squad car, he began resisting and yelling for them to tase him.

After multiple warnings, one officer tased Cosby. No additional force was used.

Thursday, Chief Billy Bolin addressed the claims being made surrounding that video. He says the officer's actions were justified.
