KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

Kansas City police are reviewing whether an officer used excessive force on a suspect during an arrest.

The 21-year-old male suspect was taken into custody on Oct. 5 after he jumped out of a car and ran from police. Officers caught him a short while later.

A mug shot taken of the suspect after his arrest shows his right eye blackened and swollen shut.

Police spokesman Capt. Tye Grant says a normal review of the arrest showed that an officer involved in the arrest "responded in a manner that required further review." Grant says the review is being investigated as a possible criminal offense of assault.

No charges have been filed against the officer, whose name hasn't been released.
