Video shows officer throwing woman down face-first
FORT COLLINS | A video spreading on social media shows a police officer in Colorado throwing a woman face-first onto a sidewalk after a scuffle.
Police spokeswoman Kate Kimble told the Coloradoan newspaper that the woman struck the officer in the
university town of Fort Collins on Thursday after police detained her boyfriend.
Ms. Kimble said the officer used “standard arrest control” to subdue her.
Ms. Kimble said the department has its own video from police body-worn cameras. She said that video hasn’t been released because the case is still open.
The department will review the officer’s use of force.
Police identified the woman as Michaella Surat, 22. She was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault and obstructing a peace officer and released on bond.
