Cop under investigation after ignoring woman's pleas for help from drunk man

A park police officer in Chicago has been assigned to desk duty while officials investigate his response to a woman who said she was being harassed for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag.

Irizarry is shown in the video wearing a sleeveless shirt that is made to look like the Puerto Rican flag, and has the name of the USA territory printed on it. People on Twitter called the officer "worthless" and noted that Puerto Rico is a United States commonwealth and its people American citizens.

Mia Irizarry said she had rented an area of the Forest Preserves of Cook County to celebrate her 24th birthday on June 24th. In the video, an older, unidentified white man, is seen provoking Irizarry and aggressively asking why she is wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt in America. The world is not going to change the United States of America.

A then-unidenfied man, pictured, was shown harassing the woman, questioning her citizenship.

She explains that she has rented the picnic area and has a permit to use the space. When the brother gets in the man's way and stops him from coming back toward Irizarry, the officer then appears to get involved and warns the brother.

The police officer turned and walked back to his police auto without responding, as the irate man followed her out onto the grass. She said the group politely complied but her Puerto Rico shirt appeared to act as a trigger to the man.

Officers arrested the man in the video, according to the Forest Preserves agency, which also described him as intoxicated.
