Post by: Private on 04 December 2014 at 18:39
A woman accused of assault asked social media users to share the video showing her being hit with batons during arrest.

Sydney Police have defended their officers against accusations of brutality after a video went viral showing a woman being held down and struck with batons as she was arrested. The woman was one of four people held for the alleged assault of a taxi driver and female police officer at 1.45am on Wednesday morning. A bystander recorded the video on a mobile phone. In it, voices can be heard shouting: "She’s not resisting arrest."

The woman being arrested is model   Claire Helen  who encouraged people to share the video on social media. Police say one member of her group had punched the taxi driver over an argument about the fare. The taxi driver then flagged down a passing police car and an altercation with the officer began. Superintendent Michael Fitzgerald says the video only tells part the story and CCTV shows Ms Helen punching a female officer in the mouth before the arrest.

He added: "Police are not punching bags. Neither are taxi drivers." Ms Helen and the three men who were also arrested have been granted bail and will appear in court on 6 January.
