A La Marque man has filed a lawsuit against the City of Galveston after he said he was badly beaten by police officers in March, using the dash cam video as his proof of police brutality, shown in the video below.
The video shows multiple police officers beating on one man on the ground at the beach, kicking him in the face and punching him while his head was under water.
 The victim,Reginald Davis, says "I thought I was going to die. My head was underwater. I couldn't breathe."
On Monday, Chad Pinkerton, Davis' attorney, filed a lawsuit against Galveston police officers Jose Santos and Archie Chapman saying they used excessive force, stating "If you evade arrest they can capture you and they can stop you. That's what they had to do. They can do that. But they can't beat you. They can't attempt to drown you."
Watch the excessively brutal beating below:
