TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are asking for video shot during the riot near the University of Arizona campus on Saturday after a video was posted online that appears to show a police officer knocking over a woman.

This video has people questioning the actions of police who were trying to control the chaos on University Boulevard after the Arizona Wildcats lost in the NCAA tournament's Elite Eight. 

After the game, fans who had been watching the game in several establishments in Main Gate Square gathered in the street and police declared it an unlawful assembly. The people were ordered to leave, but instead some in the crowd began throwing bottles and firecrackers.

The video appears to show a young woman being knocked down by an officer, but the action seems unprovoked.  

A YouTube video uploaded by Tyler Charles Boring shows the officer charging the girl and knocking her to the ground.  From what can be seen on the video, she does not appear to be aggressive with officers. 

A spokesperson from TPD has said the video has been turned over to the Internal Affairs Department.  They have also said the woman from the video has been in contact with TPD, as they review the case. 

In the meantime, TPD is asking for any other videos that show this type of force used by officers during the riot.
