In a statement to ESPN, Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said the department is "gathering all of the details to gain a clear understanding of what occurred".

The woman, who was at the stadium to watch Miami's victory over Virginia Tech, appeared to have been knocked out following the officer's punch. Her second swing smacks the officer's face and he responds with a punch to her face.

The officer then hits her with a right hook flush to her face, causing her to crumble in the officers' arms as she is carried out of view of the camera.

Saturday night's incident at the nationally televised game was posted on the Instagram account The 5th Year/Barstool Sports.

According to an arrest report, Farrington was at home with her two children on Halloween when she became upset because Tania talked back to her.

The school often employs off-duty officers in uniform to assist with crowd control, traffic and security at football games, and there were multiple skirmishes in the stands Saturday that required intervention of law enforcement and others.

Local 10 News was at the apartment complex as police arrested Farrington, walking her out of her apartment in handcuffs.

The video shared on social media shows four Miami-Dade officers removing Freitas, who was in a stairway between rows, hanging onto a another person's shirt with her right hand.

The disturbance Ross found was Freitas arguing with other fans while "using profanity in a loud and boisterous manner".

"Supervisory personnel are aware of the video, and are reviewing the incident to ensure compliance with our policies and procedures".
