Police in Elizabethtown, New Jersey, are looking into a 20-second clip of a police officer punching a woman in the face outside of a nightclub. The footage, taken with a cell phone, shows a uniformed officer outside of the Envy Night Club who appears to push a man to the ground and then punch a woman wearing a red dress in the face.

While the officer was attempting to arrest the man, the reason for punching the woman is not readily apparent.

Elizabethtown police told NBC that they are questioning the officer, who has not been named, but is still on active duty.

The video published to YouTube on March 3 has received nearly 10,000 views.
