There is just so much wrong with this incident! It is a complete disgrace that any big, strong male cop would punch anyone in the face, especially a woman.

The video below was taken at the Hard Rock Stadium during Miami’s win Saturday over Virginia Tech. In it, you can see four officers, proceeding to carry the 30-year-old nurse, Bridget Freitas, out of the stadium when she takes a limp swing at one of the officers carrying her, Detective Douglas Ross. She misses the back of his head with her first try but manages to catch him with a slap in the face on the return swing. This is when Detective Douglas Ross, responds by punching Bridget Freitas in the face with his fist and she just goes limp after that.

Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said in an email Sunday that Bridget Freitas, a 30-year-old nurse, has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He said the department is reviewing the video to make sure proper procedures were followed in the altercation at Hard Rock Stadium during Miami’s win Saturday over Virginia Tech.

According to the arrest report, Freitas had been arguing with other fans and was “using profanity in a loud, boisterous manner” when officers arrived. They say they tried to calm her down and asked her to move to the concourse, but she refused and sat on the steps.

By Sunday afternoon, the video had been shared on Twitter more than 3,000 times and was posted on numerous websites.

Jail records do not show Freitas being held Sunday afternoon. She did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

University of Miami officials said they were aware of the video and were also gathering information. The school often employs off-duty officers in uniform to assist with crowd control, traffic and security at football games, and there were multiple skirmishes in the stands Saturday that required the intervention of law enforcement and others.
