Canes fan charged with felony as police investigate incident with cop in crowd

Police are investigating an altercation between a Hurricanes fan and an officer during Saturday’s game between No. 10 Miami and No. 13 Virginia Tech. Bridget Freitas has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct as a result of the incident, according to the Associated Press.

A video taken from the game allegedly shows Freitas being carried out of Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, by police. The 30-year-old nurse appears to attempt to slap one of the officers, misses, then lands a second slap. At that moment, the officer retaliates by hitting the woman in the face. 

The report also states that Miami-Dade Police are also investigating whether proper procedures were followed by members of the department during the incident.

Miami beat Virginia Tech 28-10 on Saturday night.
