Shocking video posted to Twitter shows a brazen, barefoot woman punch a Baltimore police officer twice in the face — and then knocked out cold by another officer.
Video of the Friday night incident shows the woman shouting at officers before one grabs her arm and she attempts to walk away.
She then punches the cop in the face, before a second officer grabs her arms from behind.
But she breaks free and connects fist to face again.
That’s when another officer threw a punch — sending the woman straight to the ground.

Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young said Saturday the unidentified officer who threw the punch had been “removed from police duties,” the Baltimore Sun reported.
“I believe the first officer, who was struck multiple times by the woman, showed remarkable restraint by not retaliating as he was being assaulted,” Young said in a statement.
“The woman should have been placed under arrest and not assaulted. Our system of justice does not involve the concept of an ‘eye for an eye.’ ”
Baltimore was among the many cities across the US that broke out in protest Friday night over the death of George Floyd in police custody.
