The Chicago Tribune has dug into their archives to pull out a photo of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders being forcefully arrested.

The photo was taken by Danny Lyon and shows a 21 year old Bernie Sanders being dragged away by police officers from a civil rights protest.

Sanders was a student at the University of Chicago at the time and was taking part in a segregation protest.

The Sanders campaign has already confirmed that it is the senator in the photo. Sanders himself allegedly confirmed it.
