A Boynton Beach police officer who was placed on administrative leave after speaking to FBI agents is suing the Florida city.

The Miami Herald reports [2] that Sgt. Leif Broberg, a 24-year-veteran of the department, alleges the department threatened to fire him for launching complaints about members of the force trying to conceal video of an arrest.

Broberg said his leave amounts to punishment for talking to FBI agents about a video that he says depicts officers beating a suspect after a high-speed chase.

Broberg has contended that high-ranking members of the department wanted to discard the video.
