This is the horrifying moment a drug-dealing cop was filmed beating a suicidal hospital patient.

The March 2018 video shows Ruben McAusland from Patterson Police Department in New Jersey ruthlessly slapping Andrew Casciano, who was being treated for attempted suicide. The footage was made public last week and became a crucial piece of evidence in McAuslands conviction for assault, cover-up, and dealing heroin, cocaine, and marijuana.

Five other officers were also charged in the federal corruption investigation, including McAuslands partner, Roger Then, who filmed the incident in the hospital room and blamed McAuslands high rank for his inaction, claiming: Since he was my senior officer, I had to do whatever he said, no questions asked.

The officer was also filmed punching Casciano as he sat in a wheelchair in the hospital waiting room. Prosecutors said Casciano sustained multiple face injuries during the attack, including an eye injury that required surgery, according to the Washington Post.
