Former Philadelphia Police Lt. Jonathan Josey has been charged with simple assault for punching a woman on videotape weeks after the incident cost him his job.
Josey, 40, is expected to surrender to police Friday with his attorney to face the misdemeanor charge in the Sept. 30 incident, which was captured on a cell phone camera and went viral on YouTube. In the video, Josey is seen punching Aida Guzman, 39, as she walked away from a group of officers during a rowdy celebration at Fifth and Lehigh following the Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade.
