The Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. and his wife have filed a civil rights suit against Pittsburgh police after Baldwin was Tased while praying over his dead stepson.

The video of the incident shows Baldwin bowing over 23-year-old Mileek Grissom at UPMC Mercy Hospital on June 24, 2012 while police attempt to rip him away from the boy.

Baldwin can be seen resisting and then getting Tased by an officer.

The hospital claims that Baldwin was harmed because he was preventing doctors from reviving Grissom, but Baldwins attorney says the 23-year-old had already been declared dead.

Police have yet to make a statement on the lawsuit.

Grissom was fatally shot earlier that day while trying to break up a fight.
