Woman Beaten by Police Officer

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The family of a woman captured on video being tackled and punched by a California Highway Patrol officer has spoken out for the first time.

“He punched and pound and pound on her, the only thing she could do was block her face,” Mayisha Adams, the victim’s daughter, said.

A passing driver who recorded the video says the woman was walking along the eastbound 10 Freeway barefoot when the officer pinned her down and repeatedly struck her.

In the video, Marleen Pinnock, 51, is seen struggling and attempting to sit up while a CHP officer repeatedly punches her in the face.
