A Georgia police officer was fired Thursday, less than 24 hours after authorities say he kicked a handcuffed man in the head.
Master Police Officer Robert McDonald "stepped outside the guiding principles of our agency," a statement from the Gwinnett County Police Department says. "What happened yesterday was clearly outside of state law and department policy," the statement says. "We do not tolerate actions that are not consistent with our core values or state law." The incident was captured on cellphone video by a witness stuck behind the stopped car and the police vehicle. A police statement says the video is "very disturbing and speaks for itself" and was "very crucial to the investigation and it confirmed that the force used was unnecessary and excessive." The police department also has initiated a criminal investigation of McDonald's behavior and the results will be turned over to the county district attorney, who will decide whether to prosecute McDonald.

McDonald was hired by the department in August 2013 and graduated from the police academy in March 2014. A working phone number could not immediately be located for him, and it wasn't clear whether he has an attorney to who could comment.
McDonald assaulted the man as he responded to a call to help a supervisor with a traffic stop in Lawrenceville, just outside Atlanta, around 4 p.m. Wednesday, police said in an emailed statement.
An ambulance crew then arrived and treated the handcuffed man, who has been identified as 21-year-old Demetrius Bryan Hollins.
McDonald's shift commander initiated an "immediate investigation," police said. The officer was sent home on administrative leave and his department-issued gun was taken.
