Police officer charged after grabbing man’s neck during arrest

An Orlando police officer has been relieved of duty and is facing charges after body camera footage showed him pushing a man to the ground prior to his arrest near Lake Ivanhoe last September.

The officer, Frank Sikos, wrote in an arrest report that he responded to the area of Alden Road and Virginia Drive after two people said they saw a man, identified as Bennett Robinson, trying to get into a construction site across the street.

The arrest report says Robinson told officers he was a contractor inspecting the construction site on his walk home, around 4:15 a.m.
