SHOCKING VIDEO: A Melbourne pub security guard holds a patron in a headlock, drops him to the floor then drags him out the door, seemingly unconscious
Footage has emerged of the shocking moment a young patron was placed in a headlock, thrown to the ground and dragged out of a Melbourne pub by security guards.
Police are now investigating the alleged incident which occurred in front of shocked patrons at the Dorset Gardens Hotel in Croydon in the city's east on November 14.
Footage shows a masked security guard placing his arms around the patron's neck from behind while two colleagues watch on nearby.
The 18-year-old appears to pass out and he's thrown to the ground head first as a group of women sitting at a table in the nearby bar area watch on in horror.
The patron lies motionless on the floor as the security guard drags the patron out of the venue.
The young patron told Seven News he doesn't remember what happened next.
Hotel management declined to comment on the incident when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.

Police investigations into the incident are ongoing.
