Video shows skateboarder attacking park ranger in Philly's Love Park; police investigating

Philadelphia police are investigating a video that shows a skateboarder kicking a city park ranger while others stand by laughing at Love Park, the city's internationally renowned shredding spot.

Witness Mariano Verrico of Essex Fells, New Jersey tells WCAU-TV (http://bit.ly/1tc7Svc) he took the video on Friday.

Verrico says the park ranger warned several young men that they had to stop skateboarding in the park because there were too many children in the area.

Verrico says the ranger "got kicked in the head repeatedly and spit on."

Police tell the Philly.com (http://bit.ly/1oSW8JN ) the video was handed over to them Saturday.

The city renovated the park in 2002 and reopened it with a permanent ban on skateboarding. But there have been other reported incidents between skateboarders and authorities in recent years.
