Police claimed John McKenna was arrested because he physically assaulted two mounted police officers on their horses.

But the video shows they were the ones who assaulted him, knocking him to the ground before beating him senseless with their nightsticks.

The college student was knocked unconscious. He was charged with assault on an officer and disorderly conduct.

The cops were dressed in indistinguishable riot gear at the time, which always seems to turn cops into overly aggressive thugs.

The incident occurred March 3 in Prince George’s County, Maryland after the Maryland Terrapins defeated the Duke Blue Devils in basketball. Thousands of students took to the streets in celebration.

Police said the students were rioting but they’ve already proven to be bald-faced liars.
