Prior to his dismissal, the policeman, whose name is yet to be known, has also been arrested and will be arraigned in court today, Wednesday, after a video went viral on the internet in which he can be seen publicly assaulting the actress; breaking her vehicle’s windscreen and using tear gas on her.
