update_graphic_red_bar12:40 PM PT -- Kevin Colbert, General Manager of the Steelers, says the team has placed Porter on leave while they gather more information about his arrest. update_grey_gray_barTMZ Sports has obtained video of Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter being arrested after he allegedly roughed up a bouncer Sunday night ... and he's jawing at cops during the incident. 

As we previously reported, an off-duty officer says Porter got into it with a bouncer at The Flats bar after he was denied entry. The officer says the ex-NFL linebacker grabbed the bouncer and lifted him off the ground.

The officer says an allegedly drunk Porter then grabbed him by the wrist in a threatening manner ... and began to yell at him that he did nothing wrong. Porter was eventually arrested after the officer called for backup.

In the footage, you can see a heated Porter in cuffs. It's unclear exactly what he's saying to the officers. 

Sources at the bar tell us Porter was at the bar with at least 2 Steelers players ... who were screaming they would never come back to that bar.

Porter was booked and released on $25k bail.
