A belligerent nurse learned the hard way about “equal rights, equal fights” after attacking a Miami-Dade Police Officer- and he won’t be facing any discipline for fighting back.
Earlier this month, 30-year-old nurse and bad decision-maker Bridget Freitas was the knockout seen across the world when video footage surfaced of her assaulting a police officer, who was attempting to remove her from a University of Miami football game.
Freitas was charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct after striking the officer on the head.
The officer who threw a punch in self-defense -MDPD Officer Douglas Ross- was helping his fellow officers carry Freitas away when she struck the 18-year veteran of the force.
According to WPTV, Miami-Dade police Director Juan Perez admitted the scuffle didn’t look good but said officers don’t distinguish between males and females when throwing a punch and that Ross’ actions were well within departmental guidelines.
Within hours of the fight being posted, the video was shared on Twitter over 3,000 times and became the center of controversy for some time.
