Caught on tape: U.S. officer beats woman on roadside

Published: Updated:

The video of a California Highway Patrol officer repeatedly beating a woman around the head on the side of a Los Angeles highway has caused controversy on the Internet.

The dramatic video, which was recorded by a driver and later posted on YouTube, shows the woman walking away from the police officer before he grabs her and throws her to the ground.

California Highway Patrol told NBC 4 that it “would be premature to comment on the video without reviewing the entire incident.”
