FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Police say a Colorado woman who was thrown to the sidewalk before being arrested allegedly hit an officer multiple times and grabbed an officer by the throat.

The allegations were contained in a court document explaining why 22-year-old Michaella Surat, a Colorado State University student, was arrested Thursday night. It also identified the arresting officer as Randall Klamser. Police told the Coloradoan newspaper that he was the officer shown throwing Surat down Thursday in a video by a bystander.

The arrest affidavit was written by another officer who said Surat “required force to be arrested” after police responded to a fight and detained her boyfriend.

Surat’s attorney Andrew Bertrand says she suffered several bruises and a concussion. He says the police’s claim that a standard procedure was used is disturbing.

Police are reviewing what happened.
