ERIE, Pa. (AP) - The NAACP and other activists plan a rally to protest the allegedly wrongful beating of a black man during his arrest in northwestern Pennsylvania last month.

The Erie Times-News (https://bit.ly/2aytyUf ) reports that the rally planned in Erie on Thursday comes two days after the U.S. Department of Justice said it would review the June 27 arrest of Montrice Bolden.

Bolden was arrested on assault, resisting arrest, marijuana and driving under the influence charges.

Surveillance video of the arrest has been shared on social media and prompted questions about police conduct.

Chief Randy Bowers says four officers were involved in the arrest and any discipline will be determined by an internal investigation, which is continuing.



Bolden suffered various facial fractures and a concussion.
