Raleigh Police said officers were called to Longview Grocery at 2405 Poole Road about 8:30 p.m. Thursday night and found Kyron Hinton "acting erratically" by swinging a bottle of bleach and an ashtray stand.

When officers tried to detain him, he kicked and resisted.

Medical responders treated Hinton at the scene and then took him to WakeMed for further treatment.

Hinton faces several new charges: assault on law enforcement officer, damage to government property, resist, delay and obstruct, and second-degree trespass.

Hinton was beaten by law enforcement officers in videos that went viral, and is now suing the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, saying the Highway Patrol's negligence led to the beating.
