Pensacola Cop Fired for Excessive Force

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A Pensacola police K-9 officer has been fired after a video showed him allegedly slamming a woman into her car while arresting her.
A dash cam video shows Officer Christopher Geraci telling hit-and-run suspect Abbi Bonds repeatedly to get back into her car. She ignored the command.
Geraci allegedly grabbed her by her arm and bashed her into the side of the car, then grabbed her by her hair.
29-year-old Bonds was not seriously injured during the Aug. 2 incident.
Geraci was fired Friday and arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge. He was released on a personal-recognizance bond.
Police Chief Chip Simmons said the officer used unreasonable force.
Geraci said his attorney told him not to comment.
