Buffalo NY police ignore 75 year old man pushed down for nothingTwo police officers in Buffalo, New York, are suspended and a 75-year-old man is recovering in a hospital Friday after video showed the officers shoving the man to the ground.

Graphic video from WBFO shows the two officers pushing the man down as he approached them in a public square around an 8 p.m. curfew Thursday. The man stumbles back and falls, and the video shows him motionless and bleeding from his head.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted Friday morning that a hospital official said the man was "alert and oriented."

"That is better news. Let's hope he fully recovers," Poloncarz added.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office tweeted Friday that it was continuing its investigation of the incident and that the man was unable to provide a statement to investigators Thursday night.
