Police in LAPD were filmed laughing and fist bumping each other after brutally beating a handcuffed nurse, it has been reported.

Several Los Angeles police officers are under investigation after the incident was captured on camera.

The video shows the officers pushing her into a squad car, then giving congratulatory fist bumps to each other.

Michelle Jordan, a 34-year-old mother and registered nurse from California was pulled over by the police on suspicion of talking while driving.

They claim that Jordan defied the officers’ orders to remain in her car and began challenging them.

She was then arrested and then body slammed to the ground. Her lawyer, Arthur Corona, described her a “defenseless woman in a sundress” and asked why officers felt the need to use such aggressive means against his client.

Sy Nafiz, another attorneys for Jordan, said: “If anyone on the street attacked an innocent woman, they would be in jail. We expect the LAPD officers to be held to the same standard.”

Police claim they are investigating the incident.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck released a statement, said:  “My initial review of the officers’ statements and the recorded video cause me to have serious concerns about this Use of Force. We will investigate this thoroughly and hold our officers accountable for their actions. I immediately removed the officers from field duties and assigned one of the officers to home. Additionally, I have directed Internal Affairs Group to initiate a criminal and an administrative investigation into this incident.”
