According to Yahoo! Sports, Miami-Dade Police are investigating an incident that occurred after Saturday’s Miami game against Virginia Tech.

The videotaped incident came after Miami’s 28-10 win, where one fan was being escorted out of the stadium by three officers. As they picked her up, she appeared to take a swing at a cop, who responded by throwing a punch back at her.

Yahoo! obtained this information from the Miami-Dade Police Department:

Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said in an email Sunday that the department is “gathering all of the details to gain a clear understanding of what occurred” during the altercation at Hard Rock Stadium during Miami’s win Saturday over Virginia Tech. He released no specific information, including the names of the officer and woman and whether she was arrested.

Yahoo! mentioned that the University of Miami is aware of the situation and “were also gathering information” on what happened.

The altercation mars what was a big win for Miami’s football team, as the Hurricanes moved to 8-0 and will host College GameDay next week against No. 3 Notre Dame.
