University of Miami fan, officer altercation now under investigation by police

According to the Miami-Herald, Miami-Dade Police Detective Douglas Ross was called to Section 129 at Hard Rock Stadium during the Miami Hurricanes' game against the Virginia Tech Hokies in reference to a disturbance.

When she wouldn't exit the section, officers had to use force. Bridget Freitas has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct as a result of the incident, according to the Associated Press.

Detective Alvaro Zabaleta told ABC 10 that the department received a copy of the video right after it happened and launched an investigation into the incident.

It is unclear why the woman needed to be removed from the stadium, or if she was arrested.

In the 14-second video posted on Twitter, four uniformed officers pick up Freitas, who was wearing a green and orange Miami jersey.

A Miami-Dade Police statement says a man throwing out garbage Sunday found the body of Tania Paige inside the trash bin at his apartment complex southwest of Miami.

She flails at one officer and misses, then slaps him in the face. She did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

The officer then hits her in the head with his right fist, causing the woman to crumble as she is carried out of camera range.

University of Miami officials said they were aware of the video and were also gathering information.
