Police said Farrington lured the victim and her brother into her bedroom and then suffocated Tania with a pillow.

According to the Miami-Herald, Miami-Dade Police Detective Douglas Ross was called to Section 129 at Hard Rock Stadium during the Miami Hurricanes' game against the Virginia Tech Hokies in reference to a disturbance. Bridget Freitas has been charged with felony battery on a police officer and misdemeanor disorderly conduct as a result of the incident, according to the Associated Press.

Police are investigating a videotaped altercation where an apparently intoxicated University of Miami football fan slaps an officer, who then punches her in the head.

It remains unclear what led to the woman being removed, or whether or not she was arrested.

Investigators said she placed her body into the back of her 2013 Nissan Altima for several days before moving it into the dumpster. The woman - only identified by her surname as Freitas - was lifted from her seat by four police officers after she started arguing with the other spectators and caused a scene by swearing loudly. During the altercation, Freitas slaps Ross before he turns and hits her in the face.

By Sunday afternoon, the video had been shared on Twitter more than 3,000 times and was posted on numerous websites. She did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
