Video of the incident began circulating widely on social media, depicting people standing over the officer saying he was “always talking [expletive]" and got “knocked the [expletive] out." In another clip, city officers can be seen tending to him while the man filming says they are “next.”

MTA spokeswoman Veronica Battisti confirmed that an officer was assaulted at the Upton Metro Station and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Baltimore Sun.
