LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The California Highway Patrol has announced that it has suspended officer Daniel Andrew after a video was posted online that showed him straddling a woman on a freeway shoulder and punching her repeatedly in the head.

You can bring a brief glimpse of light into a dark world.

The July 1 video shows Andrew beating 51-year-old Marlene Pinnock, a homeless woman, who was walking along Interstate 10 in Los Angeles. The graphic video also shows Andrew beating the Pinnock's face and head as she screams and struggles.

Pinnock has sued the state patrol agency and claims she was placed under a 72-hour psychiatric hold after the attack to give Andrew and the department time to cover it up.
