Flagstaff (AZ) Police Chief Kevin Treadway announced Wednesday that officer Jeff Bonar had resigned after an investigation into a November incident during which he punched a woman in the face.
Bonar punched resident Marissa Morris in the face as he attempted to arrest her in November. He believed that Morris had outstanding warrants, but they had been served and she refused to be arrested.
Bonar said Morris had kneed him in the groin before he punched her.
Treadway said that an internal investigation had found that Bonar had used unreasonable and excessive force in the situation, and was in violation for not turning on his body camera, 12 News reports.
