Wauwatosa Police released new video of the arrest in the Mayfair Mall parking lot in which a 17-year-old was punched last Friday. 

Police said in an accompanying news release that they have begun their use of force review.

The review consists of, "all video footage of the incident, including what led up to the suspect and officer interaction, witness statements, and additional interviews."

Video obtained by TODAY'S TMJ4 on Friday of the fight shows one of the police officers punching the teen during an altercation. 

Police said they received calls about five male subjects inside the mall acting disorderly. One of the officers found the subjects in the parking lot and tried to speak with them. Then the teen started fighting with the officer police say was legally trying to detain him.
