  • Shocking video shows a Miami police officer punching an unruly fan during a college game as she was being carried out of the stadium

A disturbing video has surfaced from No. 9 Miami's 28-10 win over No. 13 Virginia Tech on Saturday night.

Nearly immediately the officer pulls back his arm and punches the woman in the face.

Police are investigating a videotaped altercation where an apparently intoxicated University of Miami football fan slaps an officer, who then punches her in the head.

The video shows a woman being carried out of the stadium by several Miami-Dade Police officers. 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.

An arrest report says Farrington suffocated Tania with a pillow on Halloween after becoming angry with the girl.


"Promoting a safe and secure environment during any special event is our primary concern", lvaro Zabaleta, a Miami-Dade police detective, told the Independent.

According to KARE11 jail records do not show Freitas being held on Sunday afternoon.

He said the investigation was still ongoing on Sunday morning.

The officer, who has not yet been identified, struck the suspect after being hit. She did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment. She attempts to slap one of the officers - Detective Douglas Ross - and misses on the first try, but connects on the second with a backhand.
