Homeland Security’s inspector general is investigating a Secret Service agent who choke-slammed a Time magazine photographer during a Donald Trump rally in Virginia, Politico has confirmed.

Videos taken at the event show a tense exchange between the photographer and the Secret Service agent, who has not yet been identified. One video appears to show photographer Chris Morris chest-bumping the agent before he threw the photo-journalist to the ground.

“We do have an independent investigation regarding that incident,” Arlen Morales, spokesman for the inspector general, said.

Morales said the goal is to have a “short turnaround” on the investigtion.

The Secret Service declined to comment on the investigation, but referred to a previous statement about the episode.

“The matter involving an encounter between a member of the Secret Service and a member of the media is under review and we therefore cannot comment further,” the statement said.

Time has contacted the Secret Service to express concern about the “level and nature” of the agent’s response.
