A videotaped altercation showing a University of Miami football fan slapping an officer who then appears to punch the fan in the head at a game has sparked an investigation, officials said Sunday.

After she fails to do so, the policeman in question swerves around and delivers a powerful punch to the woman's face.

Video of the incident quickly spread Saturday night on social media.

Farrington "lured" Tania and her brother to her bedroom, where she used a pillow to suffocate her daughter, police said.

The officer's name hasn't been released, according to The Associated Press.

The disturbance Ross found was Freitas arguing with other fans while "using profanity in a loud and boisterous manner".

While the woman was being carried on top of the policemen's shoulders, she swings her hand and tries to hit the head of one of the policemen carrying her.

The Miami-Dade police department says it is looking into the officers' actions and Freitas has been arrested. Two officers tried to get her up and out.

According to investigators, 39-year-old Diego Suarez-Perez had just finished purchasing goods Saturday morning at Tony's Food Market and was headed back to his vehicle. But I'm not altogether convinced of Miami-Dade PD's claim that the male officer struck Freitas in her face "to gain compliance and control".

The report also states that Miami-Dade Police are also investigating whether proper procedures were followed by members of the department during the incident. She was subsequently arrested for Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer and Disorderly Conduct/Breach of the peace.
