LOS ANGELES, CA - Marlene Pinnock, 51,  says she was just looking for a safe place to sleep along the side of the 10 freeway in Los Angeles, when Highway Patrol Officer Daniel Andrew attacked her out of nowhere.

“He pulled me back and started swinging and hitting me,” she says.

Granted, we don't know what happened before the cell phone video started rolling, but it is hard to imagine what could have justified this kind of violence.

“You have a felony on video,” says Pinnock’s attorney, Caree Harper.

Harper says the officer being put on administrative time off isn't enough.

“Please charge him with a felony right now and issue an arrest warrant. He should have a booking number by tomorrow,” she says.

At this point, the L.A. District Attorney’s Office is reportedly looking into it, so criminal charges may be filed.
