A woman took a fist to the face by a cop, all over a jaywalking stop.

Investigators in Seattle are reviewing the incident, which was captured on video.

Things began when an unnamed police officer spotted a teen jaywalking across Martin Lurther King Jr. Way South around 3:10 p.m., according to a report on the Seattle Police Department Web site.

When he approached the 18-year-old male, the officer witnessed four women do the same thing at the same spot on the road, about 15 feet from a pedestrian crosswalk.

“The officer instructed the females to step over to his vehicle,” officials said. “They were verbally antagonistic.”

When one of the women, a 19-year-old, began to walk away, the officer approached her and escorted her back.

“The female subject began to tense up her arm and pull away from the officer while yelling at him,” police said.

The two argued, and the officer attempted to cuff her. That is when, according to officials, another of the women interceded.

“The second female subject placed her hands on the officer’s arm, causing the officer to believe she was attempting to physically affect the first subject’s escape,” police said.

A crowd had gathered around the officer at the time, and another witness captured much of the altercation on video.
