Two Indianapolis Metro Police officers are on desk duty tonight after a controversial video of them making an arrest hit social media.

The video, which is edited in several places, shows the arrest of Marcus Jackson at 25th and Baltimore Streets last week.

An IMPD officer, Justin Beaton, found Jackson lying on the ground. The officer believed Jackson was high on PCP at the time.

The edited tape doesn't show the entire exchange, including where police say Jackson charged one of the officers.

Because the tape is edited and we have been unable to reach the person who shot the video, we've chosen not to show it or link to it at this time.

13 Investigates is checking on any disciplinary history for the officers involved.

We have learned Marcus Jackson does have a history of drug arrests.
