While attending a University of Miami football game, police charged a 30-year-old nurse with felony battery on a police officer for her part in a videotaped altercation with a detective.
Police said Bridget Freitas slapped an officer while being carried out during Miami’s win Saturday over Virginia Tech at Hard Rock Stadium when an officer hits her in the face with his fist. His full name has not been released.
Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said that the department is examining the video to make sure proper procedures were followed.
On Twitter, a video was posted showing three officers carrying Freitas, who is wearing a Miami jersey. Freitas flails at one officer and misses, then slaps him in the face. The officer then hits her in the face with his fist.
Jail records do not show Freitas being held and she did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
