SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina police are investigating a recorded incident that appears to show an officer from the department throwing a person to the ground during an altercation outside a bar.

Lt. Scott Siemsen told The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/16xbX4R ) the incident is being investigated, but he declined further comment.

The 4 1/2 -minute video posted online by a bystander had more than 20,000 views by Wednesday morning.

In the video, several people are outside a Salina bar when police arrive. An officer is shown walking over to a person and throwing him to the ground. Later the video appears to show someone being taken in handcuffs to a police squad car.

Interim Police Chief Carson Mansfield says no outside agencies have been asked to assist.
