Officer seen on video punching woman in the face

An Arizona Police officer is seen on video punching a woman in the face.

Officer Jeff Bonar was at the victim’s house because of an eviction notice.

The situation escalated quickly.

In his police report the officer said the woman became “uncooperative” and kicked him when he tried to arrest her.

He has been placed on administrative leave.

The department’s police chief said he is disturbed by the video and is working to figure out exactly what happened.
