Seattle Cop Says He Mistakenly Described Kicking Incident

SEATTLE --

A Seattle police officer acknowledged Tuesday that he mistakenly wrote in a report that he used force against a teen suspect during a "struggle" at a convenience store in October, The Seattle Times reported.

The video does show Lee entering the convenience store and kicking the juvenile suspect in the leg, chest and face.

Shortly before the incident, a group of men punched and tried to rob an undercover Seattle police officer during a phony drug buy. Two men were taken into custody but three others ran off.

The incident occurred while Lee was trying to track down the other three people.
