Six agents from Madrid were filmed forcing a woman into a police car and knocking her head off the vehicle during an arrest for not wearing a mask.
The unidentified woman was arrested on Saturday in the Spanish capital during protests by hundreds of coronavirus deniers.
It is not clear whether the woman took part in the demonstrations, but spectators could be heard shouting, “Libertad!”
Onlookers could be heard groaning as officers rammed the woman headlong into the vehicle as she fiercely resisted.

“I’m not going to put on the face mask,” the woman yelled at the officers at the beginning of the meeting.
After showing no compliance, officers led the screaming woman to their patrol car, but they couldn’t seat her inside and she called out to onlookers, “Film them!”
After officers were forced to wrestle with the suspect for about a minute, some witnesses may be heard criticizing them for being too rough.
Several officers put their hands on the woman’s head to put her in the car as she called for help.
The police were eventually able to place her in the vehicle after she picked her up and slid her in horizontally.
Several witnesses then start chanting ‘Freedom’ after she is finally placed in the vehicle and officers quickly close the door behind her.
It is unclear whether there is an open investigation into the incident.
Authorities report that about 500 people attended the COVID-19 conspiracy march that they organized via social media and did not notify the government.

Police claim they identified 110 people who were not wearing masks.
The protest resulted in 13 arrests, but it is unclear whether the woman’s arrest was included in this number.
Those arrested for not wearing their masks face a fine of between £ 260 and £ 535.
Spain has the second highest number of cases of the disease in Europe with 498,989 and the fourth number of deaths, with 29,418 deaths.
