Video has emerged showing a Fort Collins, CO police officer body-slamming a Colorado State University sorority girl down to the ground during an arrest outside of a bar.
Michaella Surat, 22, was tossed to the ground outside of Bondi Beach Bar in Fort Collins, CO Thursday after allegedly hitting an officer, says a Daily Mail report.
Fort Collins Police were on hand after reportedly receiving a call about a fight involving Surat’s boyfriend.
Officers’ body cam footage will be reviewed as part of the investigation into the incident, but Fort Collins Police Department stands by their officers’ actions.
“[Surat] remained at the scene, at which time she physically obstructed and struck an officer,” a spokesman said.
The student was booked into Larimer County Jail and later released after posting $1,750 bond.
Surat was charged with third-degree assault and obstructing a peace officer. She is set to appear in court on Wednesday.
