A slang term used by big city police describing a beating a resisting suspect receives. Usually a beating made up mostly of kicks to the body of a suspect who is down on the ground. Often given out after a car chase or foot pursuit as a punishment for putting innocent lives in danger or just running from the police.
After the police caught the suspect he resisted arrest, at which point, they put the boots to him.
