Two Chicago officers involved here are now on desk duty.

According to WGN, 24-year-old Heriberto Godinez died as he was being arrested on suspicion of burglary near a garage on the south side of the town.

In dashcam video finally released by Chicago police after months of wrangling and delays, Godinez is seen thrashing on the ground and kicking his legs as officers take him into custody.

After police back-up arrives, one officer can be seen placing his foot of Godinez’s face and neck pressing him into the ground. Godinez later died at the scene
