Video of a Metro Police officer making an arrest was posted online two days ago and seen by more than 140,000 people on Facebook.

The footage isn't new, it's a repost of an arrest near Rancho Drive and Lake Mead Boulevard last year. Its online rejuvenation is making it quite the talker with the officer using non-lethal force.

8 News NOW reporter Shakala Alvaranga has the story.
