The video which was filmed by a giggling female friend on Pitt Street in Merrylands shows the officer holding the man to a wall telling him to get on the ground. 

The man, wearing a white shirt and white hat, tells the policeman not to touch him and refuses to comply.

Two men believed to be friends of the man watch on close by in the background as the cop continues to ask him to get on the ground.

‘You’re not allowed to touch me,’ the man says. 

He then pulls out his pepper spray and discharges it in the face of the man who immediately turns away.

The woman filming the incident then screams before the man stands up and swings at the policeman, hitting him in the face.

He then turns and flees the situation as the woman filming screams: ‘Oh my god’.

NSW Police are looking into the footage.
