Saudi Arabia's state TV says King Salman has ordered the arrest and interrogation of a prince after a video emerged online purporting to show him abusing someone.

The arrest was made on Thursday morning, a day after a video was published on YouTube showing what appears to be arifle pointed toward a man who is bleeding from the head and pleading.

It also shows 18 bottles of Johnnie Walker Red Label whisky displayed on a table and a wad of cash. The sale and consumption of alcohol in Saudi Arabia is for bidden.

Another subsequent video seen nearly a quarter-million times purports to show the young, low-level prince, dressed ina black t-shirt and grey sweat pants, handcuffed and with his feet chained being escorted into a building by security officers.
