Video of Fort Collins Arrest Goes Viral

A video showing a Fort Collins police officer throwing a 22 year-old woman to the ground has gone viral.  Police say they were responding to a disturbance call, reportedly involving the woman's boyfriend.  The video shows the woman standing face-to-face with the officer and grabbing his arms before he throws her to the ground.  (Warning: the video contains explicit language)

 

Police contend the short video does not show the full context of the incident.  In a statement, Police Chief John Hutto said that officer-worn body camera footage will be released upon completion of the investigation.  The woman, who is a CSU student, is due in court Wednesday on charges of third-degree assault and obstructing a peace officer
