A Baltimore police officer has been suspended after a video showed him punching a woman and knocking her out after she punched his colleague twice in the face.
The police department said on Saturday that Commissioner Michael Harrison has also ordered an investigation of the incident. The video, posted on social media, shows the black woman confronting a white police sergeant in a downtown intersection on Friday night. When the sergeant grabs the woman's arm, she punches the sergeant twice the head.
Before the incident, the woman told reporters nearby that she was mentally unwell and unable to go home.
