Shocking video footage has emerged of a retired Salt Lake City police officer striking a woman in the face and yelling expletives at her while her young daughter watches on.
Michelle Anderson, now 43, was arrested for public intoxication in October 2014 but the video only surfaced this week after her daughter, Jasmine, posted it online.
In the footage, Ms Anderson asks the officer why she has been arrested, to which he replies: 'Remember the warning I gave you [about not disturbing the neighbors]?
The officer then suddenly spins around and strikes her in the face, leaving her lying face down and she screams 'oh my god'.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said the actions seen on the video were abhorrent and not reflective of how officers are taught to handle situations.
