Video shared on social media shows incident at Hard Rock Stadium
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating a violent exchange between a police officer and a University of Miami football fan who was removed from Hard Rock Stadium Saturday night.
Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said MDPD received a copy of the video and the investigation of the incident in Miami Gardens was ongoing Sunday morning.
The woman's first attempt to hit the officer, who was holding her right leg, failed. She was able to slap him in the face during her second attempt, and the officer struck back with his right arm, as he was using his left to hold her leg.
The woman, who was at the stadium to watch Miami's victory over Virginia Tech, appeared to have been knocked out following the officer's punch.
