    A 33-year-old California man who claimed he was assaulted by police officers has been found guilty of attempted coercion and initiating a false report after he was caught on video punching himself in the face more than 40 times.

    Newly released surveillance footage shows Aleksander Robin Tomaszewski at Lane County Jail in Oregon, where he was being held last month after being charged with first-degree sexual abuse and stalking, Raw Story reported.

    Throughout the video, Mr. Tomaszewski paces back and forth in his cell and punches himself in the face repeatedly. He appears to strike himself in the face 45 times in the four-minute clip, the Eugene Register-Guard reported.

    Yup! I watched the video. He clearly is punching himself in the face repeatedly. I suspect his main reason was that he was hoping to get his charges dropped and cut loose. But he might have been looking ahead to a cash payout by the county. Good grief, did he not notice the cameras?
