CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A college student from Chicago was thrown to the ground and bloodied by alcohol agents at the University of Virginia - and it was all caught on camera.
Martese Johnson is a 2012 graduate of the Kenwood Academy.
He was stopped by a bouncer when he tried to enter a pub, and an agent pulled him aside.
When Johnson demanded that the agent let go of his arm, another agent joined in, and wrestled Johnson to the ground, leaving his face bloodied.
The agents say Johnson was profane and belligerent - but Johnson says he wasn't aggressive.
The agents seen in the video have been suspended while the incident is investigated.
Charlottesville General District Court records show that Johnson is charged with obstruction of justice without force and public swearing or intoxication. The Alcoholic Beverage Control agent who made the arrest, listed in court records as J. Miller, said in the arrest report that Johnson "was very agitated and belligerent."
A statement from a group calling itself "Concerned Black Students" claims the arrest of Johnson was unprovoked.
The Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe's office issued a statement asking state police to investigate "the use of force in this matter."
Students at Kenwood Academy remember Johnson as a excellent and well-liked student.
Sean Shelton said Johnson was his mentor in Kappa League, a program for student leaders.
"He wouldn't hurt a fly," Johnson said.
