VIDEO: Philly Cop Hailed As A 'Beast' After Tackling Man Who Punched Her in Face

A Philadelphia police officer is being hailed as "a beast" after she tackled a combative man to the ground.

Philadelphia, PA A female Philadelphia police officer fearlessly tackled a combative man who assaulted her and her male partner on Thursday, viral cell phone footage showed (video below).

The agency is aware of the incident, and the investigation as to what occurred is ongoing, the department told Blue Lives Matter on Friday morning.

The altercation occurred at approximately 1:25 p.m. in the 100-block of East Cambria Street, in an area near the West Kensington and Fairhill neighborhoods, Philadelphia Police Officer Troy Brown told the Philly Voice.

The officers seen in the video were conducting a pedestrian investigation, when a 23-year-old Hispanic male became involved, and a physical altercation ensued, Officer Brown explained.

The male suspect, who was wearing a sleeveless, light-colored shirt, appeared to be arguing with a female Philadelphia police officer at the beginning of the video.

A male Philadelphia police officer quickly circled around the back of the irate male, and grabbed him by the lower part of his shirt as the man turned to face him.

Dont touch me, the suspect said, as he attempted to push the officer away with his left hand.

When officer maintained his grip on the mans shirt, the suspect reared back and punched him in the head with his right hand, the video showed.

The officer took as a step back as the man briefly advanced with both fists swinging.

The female officer then grabbed ahold of the suspects right arm, and he lowered his head and turned towards her while the male officer wrapped his arm around the mans neck from behind.

A crowd of onlookers grew increasingly more volatile, and encircled the officers while yelling at them.

The suspect, who had a grip on the female officers shirt, suddenly lunged forward and began punching her in the head and upper body, causing the male officer to lose his hold on the man.

The male officer fell backwards against the hood of a patrol vehicle, as the suspect lifted the female officer into the air, tearing her outer uniform shirt open.

He then pulled the female officer towards him, as she tried to escape his grasp.

The crowd moved in even closer, while the male officer desperately tried to yank the combative man away from his partner.

The female officer fought her way free, and the irate man swung his arms wildly, striking the male officer yet again.

As the male officer backed away from his blows, the female officer suddenly rushed the suspect from behind, tackling him to the ground.

The male officer struggled to hold the crowd at bay, while the female officer forced the violent suspect onto his stomach.

The male officer then deployed his Taser, hitting the man in the chest.

Alright, alright, alright, the suspect said, as he sat on the ground with his hands raised in the air.

Yall came out here and started it, one onlooker told the officers, as the man removed the Taser probes from his chest just before the video ended.

The unnamed male suspect was arrested on multiple charges, including simple assault and aggravated assault, the Philly Voice reported.

Facebook user Lamont Randall posted the video on Thursday afternoon with the caption, "She's a beast."

It had over 200,000 views as of Friday.

Philadelphia Police Department declined to comment further on the incident.

I saw a posting somewhere that said those are the ones who call the police and want protection but then those people get mad when they see the police The police have more patrolman in a area where crime is high. Those people can solve their problems byNOT doing the crime. You cant have it both ways

Another neighborhood full of filthy criminals taught to hate the police. Every one of those animals baiting the cops should be found, stripped of their government housing and welfare. You want to be a problem instead of a citizen, you don't get to live off the taxpayer.

Nowadays, officers shouldn't respond to a call or deal with the public until a minimum of 4 officers are on scene. Two to deal with the issue and two to beat anyone that comes within 6 feet of the incident. F'ing city rats!

Bystanders getting involved in cases like this is a real problem for police everywhere. The police need to make their arrest and then every person on the scene who was sticking their busybody noses into the scene needs to be arrested.

What a bunch of stupid asses!! The POS started it, not the cops. It's the middle of the day, don't these people work?? It's like roaches coming out of the woodwork!

I think it's time for a serious public education campaign with a simple message: "you interfere with a police action, you get arrested and charged with obstruction, no ifs or buts, your ass gets booked". Be consistent, record it and upload it to spread the message. Like when backup arrives the officer points a the people involved and tells the other cops: arrest for obstruction this one, and this one, and that screaming crazy lady over there". Do it several times and you won't have stupid idiots screaming and shouting at you two feets away.

Charge all those ignorant women for interfering! This just gets worse and worse these people have no respect, no morals, and absolutely no fear of the police. WTF is happening??? Every day I am stunned.

A whole lot of entitlement going on. And yes, some of those bystanders should have been arrested.

Unbelievable that the Hispanic man attacked the officers to begin with!! Glad the officer tased his ass! He could have been killed for his assault on 2 officers! And those crazy women trying to interfere should have been taken to jail also!! I feel for law enforcement as they are placed in dangerous situations everyday🇺🇸🇺🇸👮👮👮👮 I back the BLUE🇺🇸🇺🇸👮👮

Excellent job by the officers with no unnecessary force used. Having been in similar situations, some of the bystanders who interfered would have joined the suspect in jail.

These people don't deserve police protection. Let them just beat and kill each other and take whatever they want from each other. Make those places a no go zone to protect the lives of officers and leave those officers free to protect areas that respect them.

Typical ghetto savages. Sad life to have

Not that it matters, but why do massively overweight female ghetto crawlers insist on wearing spandex-tight, non-flattering clothing and nasty flip-flops? Never heard of "Dress for the body you have, not for the body you would like"? Is it a cultural thing, a proud display of how much excessive lard you pack, as a symbol of status? Maybe it's some kind of dress code to get a discount in Walmart? Jesus tapdancing Christ. As if I needed more incentive to wish they got tased until batteries dried out.

In cities all over the land, big and small, there are groups of "Free Loaders" lounging about and milling about in the daytime and sucking off the government "teats". Most of these are prolific breeders too. It seems many of them have expensive phones and using these, unruly crowds can form quickly. It's getting more and more dangerous for cops in these urban ghettos and it's gonna get worse because evil lying politicians, "news" types, and so called "community leaders" are stirring up anger. Nothing and nobody can stop this, not in "this life".

Why don't those black millionaire NFL players get off their knees and come into these black communities they claim are brutalised by cops and try to do something to educate these people about improving their neighborhoods. Instead they buy enormous mansions, jewelry , cars etc and complain about the plight of blacks and blame white America. God bless that female officer. God bless Blue Lives Matter and God bless our beautiful America.

Those who got involved should be identified and arrested. These unruly knuckle heads are the same ones that will be calling on the Police when one of these thugs are beating on them?
