Authorities say they are investigating an incident involving officers believed to have used bean-bag rounds and a Taser on a homeless man in a wheelchair.

Officers allege that the man later identified as Christopher Zareck, 43, tried to attack them, but their actions are being criticized.

Cellphone video captured the incident, which unfolded Friday night, as officers tried to take Zareck into custody near Broadway Avenue and Third Street.

The footage shows 10 LAPD officers surrounding Zareck, and shouts can be heard.
