The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office offered few details Monday about an investigation involving a white detective seen punching and kicking a handcuffed black man over the weekend, but the NAACP vowed to fight for justice.

The altercation was caught on a video and posted to Facebook, where it had been viewed more than 82,000 times as of late Monday.
