SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - The Santa Ana Police Department is investigating surveillance video that purports to show officers making derogatory remarks about an amputee, eating and playing darts during a raid at a marijuana dispensary.

The Orange County Register reported Thursday that one of the edited clips from the May 26 raid at Sky High Collective shows officers breaking through the front door and ordering customers to the floor.

A clip with subtitles purports to show officers making demeaning remarks about a female customer in a wheelchair with an amputated leg. Another clip shows an officer throwing darts.

Cmdr. Chris Revere calls the video concerning and says an internal affairs investigation is underway.

Police and media outlets have reached out to an attorney for the collective for an unedited version of the video.
