NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Black woman from Emporia, who was pulled over for a traffic stop during the July 4th weekend, says she was punched by a police officer and pulled out of her car.

Ebony Holmes, 24, appeared at a press conference Tuesday afternoon with her attorney and other supporters. Enlarged photos of Holmes with a swollen lip and bruises were on display.

Holmes was stopped by Norfolk Officer Vincent Tocco in the early morning hours of July 5 near the intersection of Chesapeake Boulevard and Tallwood Street. She had three friends riding with her.

Video recorded by one of the passengers shows Tocco opening the car door and then striking Holmes in the face and pulling her from the car.
