A violent altercation at a University of Miami football game between a fan and a police officer has resulted in the fan’s arrest for felony battery.
In the video above, you can see a fan — identified as Bridget Frietas — being carried out of Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium Saturday by four police officers. 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. Ross responds by punching her in the face. The shot appeared to knock Frietas cold, as the officers nearly dropped her due to the force of the blow.
According to the Associated Press (via ESPN), Freitas was charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The police report alleges that she was “using profanity in a loud, boisterous manner” when the four officers, including Ross, arrived on the scene. According to the report, the officers tried to calm Frietas down and move her to the stadium concourse. She reportedly refused, and sat on the steps, at which point the officers carried her out.
