MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — 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.
Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said in an email Sunday that the department is “gathering all of the details to gain a clear understanding of what occurred” during the altercation at Hard Rock Stadium during Miami’s win Saturday over Virginia Tech. He released no specific information.
A video posted on Twitter shows three officers carrying a young woman wearing a Miami jersey.
She flails at one officer and misses, then slaps him in the face. He hits her in the head with his right fist, causing her to crumble in the officers’ arms as she is carried out of camera range.
