SANTA CRUZ (CBS SF) — A Santa Cruz cameraman caught a brawl between an officer and a suspect on tape.

The officer was trying to arrest the suspect when the fight broke out in a restaurant parking lot. The pair punched and kicked each other and at one point the officer put the suspect in a headlock.

The man who shot the video said the suspect had a gun but eventually, the officer was able to subdue him.
