Cop Punches Woman (VIDEO): What Really Happened During Jaywalking Scuffle?

(CBS/KIRO/AP) More information has been released about what led a Seattle cop to punch a young woman in the face during a scuffle that was caught on video.

The video shows Officer Ian P. Walsh trying to arrest 19-year-old Marilyn Levias. The two were already struggling when Levias’ friend, a 17-year-old, pushed the officer, and he responded by punching the friend in the face.

“Are you serious? Are you serious?,” bystanders are heard saying.

According to probable cause documents, 19-year-old Marilyn Levias and a 17-year-old girl were in a group of four people who were jaywalking to get to their friend. Walsh approached the group and was attempting to gather information when Levias began walking away, documents stated.

He said to her, “You have jaywalked and you are required to identify yourself so that I can issue a citation, if you refuse you will be arrested for obstruction.” Levias continued to walk away, the officer said.

At this time, a witness started recording video of the scene.

Walsh walked up to Levias and grabbed her arm and attempted to handcuff her, but “Levias began twisting around and pull away in an attempt to get away,” documents said. As Walsh was handcuffing Levias, the 17-year-old girl ran up behind Walsh and pushed him, and a struggle ensued. The video shows Walsh throwing a punch and hitting the 17-year-old girl.

The 17-year-old was handcuffed and booked into the Youth Services Center for investigation of felony assault.

Levias was pulled away by witnesses, documents said. She was arrested and booked into the King County Jail for obstructing a police officer.

CBS Affiliate KIRO found court records that show Levias has been arrested for assaulting a police officer before. According to court documents, Levias kicked a King County Sheriff’s deputy in the stomach while she resisted arrest at the Ruth Dykeman Center in Burien. She was living in the center last year in the care of Child Protective Services.

Acting Deputy Police Chief Nick Metz said at a news conference Tuesday the department is withholding judgment until an investigation is complete.

“Force never looks good. It’s never pretty,” Metz said. But he also noted, “We do have a number of concerns about the tactics the officer used and employed at the time.”

  1. No you do not have the right to resist arrest. No your friends do not have the right to help you resist arrest.

  2. Um. That report is inconsistent with the video. She is just standing there arguing and he has his hand on her. She pushes his hand off of her and then he tries to subdue her. He started it by touching her. He can’t arrest her for Jaywalking so no reason to touch her and she’s clearly just standing their not walking away while he’s trying to give her a ticket. You have the right to resist unlawful arrests by cops. Your friends have the right to help you.

    • No, Jay you don’t have the right to resist arrest even an unlawful arrest. While jaywalking may not be an arrestable offense when she refused to give inforation and tried to walk away she was now “Interfering with a police officer” which IS an arrestable offense. Funny but I see a situation that is being inflamed by the two “girls”. Clearly the girl in the pink put herself into the situation, not the officer. By the way the two “girls” have prior history of robbery, theft and resisting arrest. kudos to the officer, well done sir in a very tough situation.
