The moment a bouncer violently shoves a teenager onto the road was caught on film by a witness, who said the man didn’t provoke him.
Raymond Wedlake, from New Zealand, was waiting outside the Chic bar in central Christchurch when the altercation began between the bouncer and the man.
The footage showed the man, much smaller than the bouncer, talking with him outside the establishment.
The man didn’t make any physical contact with the bouncer, who made a move just a few seconds into the confrontation.

Mr Wedlake told the Herald the man did appear to be intoxicated but wasn’t confrontational.
‘The bouncer pushed him a couple of times, minor, but he wasn’t doing anything except trying to gain entry and holding his ID up,’ he said.
The incident has been reported to New Zealand Police as the owner of the bar spoke out and said an internal investigation has been launched
‘He wasn’t aggressive or anything, just like the video shows, and then the bouncer stepped in there and completely pushed him
Chic owner Peivand Yazdan told the New Zealand Herald he had launched an internal investigation and assured the public appropriate actions would be taken.
‘There is no excuse for what has taken place at the door…we are truly shocked with what has happened as are many people that have messaged us as they too know him as a friendly gentleman,’ he said.
The incident was reported to New Zealand Police.
