Caught on Video: Woman Punched by Officer

ELIZABETH, N.J. — A police officer has been captured on cell phone video punching a woman in the face.

A witness says the woman who was punched was drunk, but she was just trying to tell the officer not to hit another man who got pushed to the ground.

The Elizabeth police department did not name the officer and said he is on active duty.

Police officials are investigating the incident.
