A Superior, Wisconsin police officer slammed an uncooperative woman against the hood of a squad car, slapped her an hit her twice in the face with his closed fist — and an attorney for his department said the brutal attack was “defensible.”
What happened between Officer George Gothner and Natasha Lancour on the night of Jan. 5 in a bar parking lot was captured by a dashboard camera. Police were apparently called to the scene because of a fight between two men, who were taken away by other officers. Then, Gothner can be seen attempting to arrest Lancour. He throws her against the hood of the squad car, slaps her and bashes her face against it. When Lancour recoils, Gothner administers two closed-fist punches to her face.
Lancour is a five-foot-tall black woman. She claimed her race was a factor in how police decided to treat her, according to Northland’s News Center.
