Watch: New Video Resurrects Brutality Claims Against Female College Student

New video footage shows a Fort Collins police officer slamming a Colorado State University student to the pavement outside of a bar in April last year — from the perspective of officer Klamser’s body cam obtained by CBS Denver.

Michelle Surat,22, was body slammed face face first to the pavement outside a bar in Fort Collins last year, causing an injury to her chin.

​The story only went public after a bystander who recorded the incident on a smart phone and posted it to Snapchat.

After the story broke, Klamser accused Surat of digging her nails into his neck and choking him.

However, his body camera footage contradicts that claim.

Klamser arrived after someone called 911 to reporting a fight involving Surat’s boyfriend outside the Bondi Beach Bar.

​Body cam footage shows Klamser telling Surat she is free to leave, but her boyfriend has to stay.

“He is not free to go, but you can keep walking,” he barks at Surat.

But she protests, telling officer Klamser she is staying.

Video shows Klamser then grabbing Surat.

“You don’t need to touch me,” she insists.

​​”I don’t want to throw you on the ground,” Klamser warns just before he slams her face first into the pavement.

By standers scream as Surat hits the floor.

“He doesn’t have the right to grab her. And she has a right to resist under Colorado law,” David Lane, Surat’s civil rights attorney, told CBS Denver.

“He has no legal right to use that force,” he said.

“And she has a legal right to resist that force.”

When the story emerged last year, the Fort Collins Police Department stood by Klamser’s treatment of Surat.

“She remained at the scene, at which time she physically obstructed and struck an officer,” a department spokesman told the Coloradoan just after the story broke.

Surat was charged with resisting a police officer and third degree assault.

The third degree assault charges have been dropped, but the resisting charge is still pending.

Video footage shows roughly four seconds of verbal confrontation between Klamser and Surat, during which she makes no physical contact with him, before he picks her up and slams her to the ground.

Surat is still out on bail and is set to stand trial for resisting arrest.

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.
