The FBI is investigating whether a Pittsburgh police detective was out of control when he pulled a Taser on a man in Pittsburgh over the weekend, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The incident captured a national audience after a cell phone video caught Detective Frank Rende walking up to a man and pointing a Taser in his face.

“When anything attracts our attention that could potentially violate any civil rights of the public, or of anyone in the community, we assess the situation,” FBI spokeswoman Kelly Kochamba told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The man who was targeted by police, 27-year-old Mark Keyser Jr., faces charges of defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

The detective has a long disciplinary history, the Post-Gazette reported.
