OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City police are reviewing the conduct of an officer after an incident in which a handcuffed man was apparently dragged face-down across the floor at Will Rogers World Airport.

Video from the Feb. 20 incident appears to show a uniformed officer shoving a man who was shouting at him. The footage shows officers telling the man to get on his stomach and put his hands behind his back before a struggle ensued and the handcuffed man was dragged across the floor.

According to The Oklahoman (), 53-year-old James Heidebrecht screamed that he was waiting to see presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and had documents for him. http://bit.ly/GKHJjP

Heidebrecht was taken to the Oklahoma County Jail but was released the next day. Disorderly conduct and other complaints filed against him were dropped.
