One Georgia police officer has been fired for kicking a handcuffed suspect, Demetrious Hollins, during a routine traffic stop.

Prior to the face stomp, another officer can be seen punching the suspect while his hands are up and not resisting arrest.  That officer has yet to be disciplined.

Hollins was charged with driving with a suspended license and having a small amount of marijuana.
