Video: A Police Officer Drops an Unsuspecting Girl With a Punch at the UA Riot


The University of Arizona riot after their basketball team lost to Wisconsin with a Final Four berth on the line already featured some top-notch excessive police force. But you know what it was missing? Some downright, old-fashioned, police brutality.

Enter this video from the night, filmed by student Phoebe Landolt.

“These girls had been trying to get to their car. The girl is on her phone not paying attention and this cop came out of nowhere and just leveled her,” Landolt told the Daily Star. “After that everyone just started yelling and she started crying.”
