(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with assault after a police officer was seen falling from the man’s car.
The man was accused of crashing onto the officer.
However, video footage taken by a journalist shows a different story.
The shocking video, which was taken in Argentina, shows the police officer actually leaping onto the windshield of the moving car before falling to the ground.
A group of officers then dragged the driver out of the car and threw him to the floor.
The video, posted on the Twitter account of journalist Federico Aikawa, shows the officer jumping into the path of the car and breaking its windshield before throwing himself to the floor.
The incident took place during a protest in Buenos Aires, where people were rallying against the lay-offs by the multinational auto parts company Lear.
Protests have taken place across Argentina, to highlight the struggle of Lear workers in the country.
