watch Police pepper spray a guy after taking his phone on 6th Street in Austin (viral video)

pepper spray

If you’ve ever been to Austin, you probably know that 6th Street resembles Mardi Gras on weekends. If you’ve ever been to SXSW, you’ve likely have spent some time wandering up and down the crowded street while weaving through drunk people on your way to and from various music venues, bars, head shops and late-night food joints. Cops are always out in full force, and this weekend it looks like it got especially rowdy.

Gawker reports that authorities in Austin say they’re currently investigating the incident which went down Sunday morning (late Saturday night).
