This is the moment several cops beat up two brothers on the street with truncheons after they left a popular nightclub with friends.
The incident took place in the early hours of the morning when a group of friends left the Dixit nightclub in the seaside city of Villa Gesell in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires.
The police officers allegedly attacked two brothers identified as Juan Pablo Guazzotti, 21, and Tomas, 19.
The video shows several police officers throwing one of the men on the ground and hitting him with a truncheon as stunned group members look on.

At one point, they are seen grabbing the topless man by the neck before appearing to arrest him while pushing him against a wall.
According to local media, several group members were sprayed with mace while officers even used rubber bullets.
Reports said that one victim had to be hospitalised with bruises and cuts to his body and face.
The young men were reportedly attacked following an incident inside the nightclub when the group was asked to leave.
However, the cops stopped them on the street and started beating them up without a word, according to reports.
The officers’ motive is currently unclear.
Two of the group members are brothers of the Argentine footballer Sebastian Ereros, 33, who said: “They are better now, but they were very scared about what happened.”
The brothers’ mother arrived after being called by Juan Pablo’s girlfriend.
According to reports, she was also arrested after she saw the state of her sons and struggled with the cops.
She allegedly spent the night in a police station cell without being given any water.
There have been no further updates on the brothers’ condition and the incident is still being investigated.
