Video: Seattle cop punches girl after hands placed on officer

By PoliceOne Staff

A Seattle cop’s attempt to cite a group of girls for jaywalking on Tuesday did not go according to plan. The citation got out of control and resulted in the officer punching a 19-year-old girl after she repeatedly placed her hands on him while he attempted to subdue her friend, which can be seen in the video below.

KOMO-TV reported that the Seattle police are investigating an assault of one of their officers, who has said that the women were being verbally antagonistic while he tried to cite them. At one point, one of the girls placed her hands on the officer’s arm, which he said led him to believe she was trying to help the other escape.
