A shocking new video is bringing up an issue with some troubled history in southern California — accusations of excessive force and police brutality. Here's how KABC described the incident.
"An arrest so violent, it is hard to watch ... She started to walk down the on-ramp and then turned around and came back up and crossed lanes of traffic, endangering herself and the motoring public." (Via KABC )
Police say it happened just before 6 p.m. July 1 near an on-ramp on I-10. KCBS reports the California Highway Patrol officer punched the woman more than 10 times while he was sitting on top of her.
Highway patrol did not cite a specific charge against the woman, only saying she endangered the public by wandering along the highway and that she had been arrested and taken to the hospital for a mental and physical evaluation. Accusations of brutality and excessive force have proved a reccurring problem for the L.A. area.
According to KNBC , the police officer involved in the video has been put on paid administrative leave. The highway patrol would not identify the officer.
