Video shows Florida police officer punch woman in face at football game

In a statement to ESPN, Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said the department is "gathering all of the details to gain a clear understanding of what occurred". Three carry her up the steps, with one officer hoisting her torso with his arms under her shoulders and the other two carrying her legs.

A videotaped altercation showing a University of Miami football fan slapping an officer who then appears to punch the fan in the head at a game has sparked an investigation, officials said Sunday.

The incident happened during the University of Miami's victory over Virginia Tech at the Hard Rock stadium on Saturday night. Bridget Freitas has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct as a result of the incident, according to the Associated Press.

Jail records do not show Freitas being held Sunday afternoon.

It remains unclear what led to the woman being removed, or whether or not she was arrested.

A South Florida woman has been arrested on charges of suffocating her 4-year-old daughter with a pillow and then putting her body in a dumpster.

The video has been shared on social media, sparking outrage from people who have called for the immediate removal of the officer who retaliated in such a violent manner.

The officer, who has not yet been identified, struck the suspect after being hit.
