Police investigating altercation between Hurricanes fan, officer

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

Police said Farrington lured the victim and her brother into her bedroom and then suffocated Tania with a pillow.

Bridget Freitas, a 30-year-old nurse, has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

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 Miami-Dade Police Department is reportedly gathering information regarding the incident.

According to the arrest report, Farrington on October 31 became upset when her daughter talked back to her and brought Tania and her brother into a bedroom where she suffocated Tania with a pillow. "Supervisory personnel are aware of the video and are reviewing the incident to ensure compliance with our policies and procedures".

A video posted on Twitter shows three officers carrying Freitas, who is wearing a Miami jersey. At that moment, the officer retaliates by hitting the woman in the face. Freitas is Hispanic, according to the report.

The video has spurred headlines across the internet.

A man throwing away garbage Sunday afternoon at the Tuscany Place Apartments in Miami-Dade County discovered her body and called 911, according to a news release.

The video can be seen below. There were many other altercations in the stands on Saturday that required the intervention of law enforcement.
