Cop shoves innocent man head first into wall, puts him into coma (VIDEO)

A Washington state man who was incorrectly identified as a suspect in an assault on May 10, is now clinging to life in critical condition.

Christopher Harris, a 29-year-old Edmonds man is in a coma, with skull fractures after being pushed into a wall by a King County sheriff's deputy working the Metro Transit overnight shift on foot patrol. Harris had started to run after deputies ordered him to 'stop,' and sustained his injuries after deputies caught up with him near a Seattle 'Cinerama.' It remains unclear why Harris decided to run.

After Harris is slammed into the wall, the deputy then drags him away from the wall by one arm, and attempts to handcuff him before seeming to realize the seriousness of Harris' injuries and calling for help.

The King County sheriff's department released a surveillance video, along with their internal investigation results of the incident last week
