A scuffle between an Atlanta police officer and a female customer at an IHOP restaurant in Atlanta Georgia was captured on video...much to the chagrin of the policeman.
A group of friends went to get coffee at the IHOP in the early morning hours on Easter Sunday, and a man asked them to be quiet.
The next thing you see is the man, an Atlanta Police Officer, punching a woman in the face with a clenched fist delivered with full force.The video shows many witnesses to the beating.
Witnesses say the scuffle escalated when one of the woman's friends told the officer that he was being recorded. "He attacked her ... he literally attacked her," the witness said.
Police eventually confirmed the incident late Tuesday evening, April 26, 2011.
The police said: “The Atlanta Police Department is aware of the incident that took place early Sunday morning involving one of its officers attempting to arrest a patron at an IHOP in Buckhead.
"The matter has been referred to our Office of Professional Standards to determine whether department policies and procedures were followed. Further comment at this time would not be appropriate.”
