LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say two Los Angeles police officers are under investigation for a beating incident in Pacoima that was captured on video.

The Los Angeles Times reports ( ) Chief Charlie Beck said Tuesday that footage of a use-of-force incident during an Aug. 21 traffic stop was cause for serious concern.

Beck pledged to have the incident thoroughly investigated.

Police officials provided no details on what sparked the confrontation but called the footage very troubling, saying the officers' actions would be difficult to explain.

Both officers have been assigned to non-field duties pending the outcome of an investigation.
