Figures he'd be under investigation for trying to save her life.

YOU CAN PLAINLY SEE HER SWING AT THE OFFICER NUMEROUS TIMES.
SHOULD HAVE LET HER RUN IN THE HOUSE. SHE PROBABLY LOST A WEEKS SALARY WORTH OF METH.

@Richard,
Do you actually believe the filth that you wrote? She was obviously deservedly distraught over losing her home. Should she have put her hands on the officer (or anyone else), of course not but this job more than any other means that we need to step outside of ourselves sometimes. I wasn't there but maybe the thing to do was step back and let the guy that looked like he was beginning to control her get her calmed down. Maybe the thing to do is contrary to what we are used to doing. Sometimes we get so used to being in charge and giving orders that we forget that sometime the best thing to do is just to back off.

Of course she's going to say after the fact that she wasn't trying to go back in the house. You can clearly see in the video that before that officer gets to her, another officer from the right is also advancing towards her, but stops once he gets his hands on her and removes her from the situation. It's pretty obvious to me that she was out of control and he did what he felt necessary in a stressful and dangerous situation to keep her safe.

This is complete B.S. He's there trying to help her she is clearly irrational. She makes it known by hitting the officer, who is trying to stop her from going back into the burning house. He should've let her go back in. This is what he gets for trying to save her life. That SUX!!! Keep your head up Officer. Good Luck.

She should be thankful the officer(s) didnt file charges against her for hitting them
