PENSACOLA, Fla -- A veteran cop was fired and charged with criminal battery after officers reviewed a video of him slamming a woman into her car.
Officer Christopher Geraci had been responding to a hit-and-run, and a witness identified Abbi Bonds as a driver who struck two vehicles with her white Chevrolet before driving away, according to the police report.
Dash cam footage from Aug. 2 shows Geraci telling Bonds to get back in her car before he grabs her left arm and swings her body into the side of the car, causing her to fall to her knees and bang her chin against the vehicle.
Geraci is charged with battery.
Bonds is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to yield, no proof of insurance and driving under the influence.
