Man in hospital beating video says he knew it would happen

A man seen in a video being beaten and kicked by security guards at a Delaware hospital says he knew he'd be roughed up when they approached him.

The News Journal reports (http://delonline.us/2pk6iyF ) that 37-year-old Terrance Carter says he was treated at Wilmington Hospital in February after punching a refrigerator.

After tussling with a man he knew at the hospital, Carter says the other man declined to press charges and guards escorted Carter away. He asked why they were being aggressive, but says he "already knew what was going to happen."

Video obtained by the newspaper shows a man handcuffed to a wall being repeatedly struck while four security officers try to restrain him.

Christiana Care Health System spokeswoman Karen Browne says the officers and two supervisors are no longer employed.
