A former police lieutenant videotaped punching a woman after last year's Puerto Rican Day parade in Philadelphia has been
acquitted of simple assault.
A municipal judge ruled Tuesday in the case of Jonathan Josey, who was later fired.
Video posted online showed the woman being struck in the face and falling to the ground, her face bloodied, and then being led away in handcuffs.
