PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Pensacola police K-9 officer has been found not guilty of battery after a video showed him allegedly slamming a woman into her car while arresting her.
A dash cam video shows Officer Christopher Geraci telling hit-and-run suspect Abbi Bonds repeatedly to get back into her car in August. She ignored the command.
Geraci allegedly grabbed her by her arm and bashed her into the side of the car, then grabbed her by her hair. But Geraci's attorney said Friday the video that went viral didn't show the entire incident.
The Pensacola News Journal (http://tinyurl.com/bsnewb4) reports 29-year-old Bonds was not seriously injured.
Geraci was fired and charged with battery.
A jury this week found Geraci not guilty. He is also appealing his firing.
