FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Fort Collins police are investigating an incident involving an off-duty police officer where the officer was captured on video pinning a woman to the ground.

The Coloradoan reports ( ) Fort Collins Police Services spokeswoman Kate Kimble said Sunday in a news release that the officer was on his way to an assignment Friday when he saw a car speeding in traffic, so the officer followed the car until it parked.

The officer, whom police have not identified, tried to make contact with the driver, who, Kimble says, then tried to leave. Kimble says the officer “physically took her into custody” after an interaction between the two.

The unidentified woman was cited for careless driving and obstructing a peace officer before she was released.
