Two cops kick and punch a suspect laying on the ground after a wild high-speed chase _

COLUMBIA, Md. - At least 2 law enforcement officers kicked and punched a suspect who was already laying on the ground after a high-speed chase Thursday, something the Howard County police chief called "not acceptable."

"I've seen the video and I have some concerns," said Chief Bill McMahon. "Some of what I saw on that video is clearly not what I expect from my officers. It is not acceptable."

McMahon says an internal investigation into the behavior of some of the officers is already underway.

"I have directed our internal affairs division to conduct an investigation into some of the actions that took place during the arrest," Chief McMahon said in a statement.

"Even though this suspect put innocent lives at risk on the road, I always want my officers to meet the highest possible standards."

The chase began around 12:55 p.m. at Dorsey Run Road and Patuxent Range Road in
