A male was caught on video brutally body-slamming a female on a parking lot surface in Auburn, Alabama, over the weekend after she tried to end her attacker’s beatdown of another male.
What are the details?
Cellphone video captured the incident during which two college-age males were fighting in a parking lot in the 700 block of West Magnolia Drive on Sunday, WRBL-TV reported.
One male gained control in the fight, pinning down the other male and repeatedly punching him in the face and head, the station said, adding that the pinned-down male soon stopped fighting back.
A female soon tried to stop the beatdown by pushing the male who was punching the other male in the head, WRBL said.
With that, the male who’d been dominating the fight picked up the female by her waist with his right arm, spun her backward in mid-air, and slammed her on the parking lot surface, the station said.
At that point, both the male and female were lying motionless on the ground as the other male resumed punching the beaten-up male in the face and head, WRBL said.
