FL Cop Suspended for Body Slamming Woman, Knocking Her Out,

A Florida cop who was caught on video body slamming a woman because she was arguing with her boyfriend is now serving an 80-hour suspension.

Cape Coral Police Captain Michael  Torregrossa, whom was first identified on PINAC, began serving his suspension Monday of last week. He will also be required to take remedial training and to review use-of-force techniques, according to The News-Press.

Prosecutors reviewed the footage but determined he had broken no law.

But an internal affairs investigation determined he had violated departmental policy on conduct unbecoming a police officer, improper force of use and failure to provide medical aid in a use of force incident.

The incident took place March 13 in a parking lot of a bar where a 23-year-old woman named Brittnie Nickole Fails was drunk and arguing with a male friend, who had taken her keys to keep her from driving.

The woman was obnoxious, shouting and shoving her friend, who was being patient and telling her to just take a cab home.

Another man was standing to the side recording, sensing that things could easily get out of control.

But nobody expected Torregrossa to come running up from behind her and swinging her around where she landed on the pavement with a thud.

“Uncalled for, sir,” says the man recording as the woman ends up laying on the ground, not moving or speaking.

“Get her up, she’s sitting there faking it,” Torregrossa says.

“I’m trying to get her home,” it sounds like her friend tells the cops. “I don’t want to do nothing with this.”

“We were right there, we could have helped,” the cop tells him, whose idea of helping is obviously a little warped.

“She’s out, dude,” says the man recording.

“She’s not out, she’s playing games,” Torregrossa says.

Torregrossa then threatened to arrest the man recording.

Fails was charged with disorderly intoxication but the charge was dropped.

She now has an attorney who is considering filing a lawsuit.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
