Chicago police are investigating a video of officers who allegedly forced a college student to pose with them after his arrest during last month’s G-20 summit in Pittsburgh.

The Chicago police officers were paid by Pittsburgh to assist with security, Chicago officials said.

During the incident, several uniformed officers can be seen standing behind the student, identified by his attorney as University of Pittsburgh student Kyle Kramer, while he is made to kneel as a photo is taken.
