From Inside Edition:
Police in Colorado are under fire after an officer was caught on tape body-slamming a Colorado State University student face-first into the ground. Authorities denied it was excessive force, saying 22-year-old Michaella Surat "physically obstructed and struck" an officer. The cop, from the Fort Collins Police Department, was responding to a bar fight Thursday allegedly involving Surat's boyfriend. In the video, Surat appears to be pushing away from the officer, who then took her to the ground.
