Two men have filed a lawsuit in a violent beating last month that allegedly involved Chicago police officers.

The incident was caught on surveillance video outside Arturo's Taco's on North Western. Matthew Clark and Gregory Malandrucco say they were beaten by the plainclothes officers after inadvertently blocking the officers' path to the cash register.

The lawsuit says the altercation escalated outside in the parking lot and both plainclothes and uniformed officers left them in the parking lot without providing medical attention.

The Chicago Department of Law says it's not commenting on the incident because it has not seen the lawsuit.
