A Utah Highway Patrol trooper is under investigation after a video showed him punching a woman several times during a traffic stop, a spokesman for the Utah Department of Public Safety said.
A dashboard camera captured footage of Sgt. Andrew Davenport punching 53-year-old Darla Wright in August.
Davenport is on paid administrative leave, said Brian Hyer, spokesman for the Utah Department of Public Safety.
Wright was speeding in Ogden when officers tried to pull her over, authorities said late Saturday. According to an incident report, the driver evaded police, and a chase ensued. Authorities stopped the woman by trapping her car between two vehicles.
