A cop was caught on video appearing to strike a 14-year-old girl. The girl got arrested.


San Antonio police are reviewing body-camera footage after video posted online appeared to show an officer striking a 14-year-old girl three or four times, the Associated Press reported.

The footage was shot outside an event center on Saturday. Authorities say police were called about two men fighting at a quinceanara, a Hispanic tradition celebrating a 15-year-old girl's birthday.  

The 14-year-old girl in the video was arrested for assaulting a public servant, a charge that her lawyer denies.
