A graphic video of police shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground in Buffalo, New York Thursday (June 4) quickly went viral and drew wide condemnation on social media.

It shows the majority of the officers there march past after the man falls.

The man is then seen bleeding from his ears.

Two officers have been suspended without pay within hours of the video being posted by a reporter from local public radio station WBFO.

The station reported that two medics came forward and helped the man into an ambulance.

Police initially issued a statement saying the man was injured after tripping and falling.

The events transpired as protesters returned to the streets of several U.S. cities for the tenth night of protests over the police killing of George Floyd.

In a statement, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said he was disturbed and disheartened by the video quote "after days of peaceful protests." Brown says the city's police commissioner has ordered an investigation and that the 75-year-old was in stable but serious condition.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended President Trump after he floated a baseless conspiracy theory in one of his tweets. The president commented on an incident involving Martin Gugino, a 75-year-old man who was shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo, New York. Trump described the elderly man as an “Antifa provocateur”, and claimed he was scanning “police communications in order to block out the equipment.” McEnany insisted that the president was only pointing out “questions that need to be asked,” adding that Trump did not regret what he said.

MythBusters' Adam Savage Faces Shocking Accusation By Family Member

Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is facing a horrific accusation. And it's not from a groupie or ex-girlfriend, either. It's from his sister. Newser reports Miranda Pacchiana filed a lawsuit Tuesday in New York state accusing her brother of 'repeatedly' sexually abusing her as a child. Savage was 9 to 12 years old at the time of the alleged assaults, and Pacchiana was 7 to 10. Now 52, Savage denies everything. While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end.
