A rookie Jacksonville cop was arrested and fired after being caught on shocking video beating up a handcuffed strip club employee.
Video shows probationary patrol officer Akinyemi Borisade repeatedly hitting 31-year-old Mayra Martinez on Wednesday at the Duval County jail.
Earlier in the day, Borisade and another officer had to use force to restrain Martinez — an incident that was also recorded.
At the jail, Borisade struck Martinez several times after she had tried to kick him. She then sat slumped next to a garbage can as other officers looked on.
“There are ways that this could have been dealt with without striking her,” Undersheriff Pat Ivey told the Florida Times-Union.
Borisade, 26, was arrested on a battery charge, authorities said Thursday. The cop, hired in March of 2015, also lost his job.
Other officers at the scene were not charged.
