Police kicked down this mother’s front door to arrest him and led him outside in handcuffs to sit in the rain in Bankstown.
And despite his mother clearing telling police that he did not touch her – her son was hit with a domestic violence assault charge.
In the video the mother can be seen pleading with the police to let her son go after an officer kicked her son’s leg.
After the kick she screamed: “Stop hitting him – you can’t just hit him like that.”
In another part of the video she is heard insisting that her son had done nothing wrong.
She said: “He didn’t touch me. He was giving you the pen to sign the paperwork.”

In the clips the son, clearly in distress is heard shouting at police and calling them “f**king dogs”.
The family’s lawyer, Adam Houda, told Mail Online that the 17-year-old suffers from mental illness.
He said police arrived at the home for an unrelated matter at 4am but no-one answered the door.
They came back at 7am and when the door was opened police allegedly saw the son assault his mother.
The lawyer said: “When they knocked on the door the son was saying “come back into the house” and it was at that point they allege he assaulted her,”
He added that he would be seeking damages from police on behalf of the boy.
He said: “It’s shocking – it’s absolutely shocking. It’s not a good look for New South Wales Police.
“How many cops were there and the kids is lying on the ground fully handcuffed.”
