SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A man who was seen being repeatedly hit by San Diego police officers in a widely-viewed video was sentenced to more than four years yesterday. 20-year-old Trenelle Cannon plead guilty to resisting arrest and separate robbery and burglary charges. Back in May, a video surfaced of police punching Cannon during his arrest. The video raised concerns of police brutality and excessive use of force.

Geofencing forces riders to slow down to 8 miles per hour in busy areas “like Balboa Park and our boardwalks,” San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer wrote on Twitter.
