Texas Cop Punching 14-year-Old Girl Caught On Tape


A video posted on social media Sunday shows at least three San Antonio police officers forcibly detaining a 14-year-old black girl. In the footage shot by a bystander, one officer appears to punch her in the face.

“It looks like the officer punched the girl with a closed fist,” said Artessia “Tess” House, one of the girl’s lawyers.

Warning: Video contains graphic images.

The girl, whose name HuffPost is withholding because she is a minor, was attending a quinceanera on the night of May 20. During the party, two adult male attendees got into an altercation indoors with one accusing the other of becoming “inappropriate with the juveniles,” according to a preliminary police report provided by the San Antonio Police Department.

  The cop claims the girl hit him and he reacted in retaliation.
