On Sunday, the Athens-Clarke County Police issued a statement on their Facebook page acknowledging the video's virality.
But Monday afternoon, ACC Police Chief Scott Freeman released a statement confirming that he has taken extra precautions by ordering an internal affairs investigation and the release of the officer's body cam footage.
Upon seeing his father in handcuffs, the 10-year-old became "extremely emotionally distraught", according to the press release.
Ariel Collins posted the clip on Facebook, which has already received more than 15,000 shares and over 450,000 views.
When the cop asks him a question, which is inaudible on the recording, the child nods and says, 'Yes, sir'.
The two officers are then confronted by several women, who angrily challenge their handling of the situation.
Police arrested the child's father last Friday on domestic violence charges, campus paper The Red & Black reported.

"(Sic) didn't do anything but was tryna talk to his dad who was in the police auto", Ariel Collins, the boy's cousin, wrote on her Facebook post.
The ten year-old boy was emotional and screaming while his father was put under arrest. Other adults at the scene attempted to restrain him but weren't successful. The officer told the child he was not under arrest and that he would let him up if he would remain calm.
"As the suspect was being placed in the back of the patrol auto, the video clearly shows the child run past family members and again ran towards our officer and lunged at one of the officers".
An officer reportedly "caught the child in mid-air and the momentum allegedly caused both the officer and the child to land on the patrol vehicle", the police department's statement said.
The boy eventually calms down and the police officer allows him to speak to his father through the window of the patrol vehicle. The child continued to be emotionally distraught but was not resistant towards our officers. Officers then allowed the boy to speak to his father through the patrol auto window.
"We fully believe after watching the body cam footage and from the paperwork that we have that they will understand that there are two sides to this story and that the officers had what they had in front of them and had to deal with what they had directly in front of them", Rodriguez said.
"The Athens-Clarke County attorney is reviewing the video footage due to a juvenile involvement, and the video will be released once his office has completed their review", Rodriguez said.
