Police Officer Who Visciously Slammed CSU Student Into Ground Is Exonerated

Back in early April, Michaella Surat, a Colorado State sorority girl, was slammed to the ground outside of a bar by a police officer.

Surat, 22, was thrown to the ground outside Bondi Beach Bar in Fort Collins, Colorado, on Thursday, April 6, after allegedly attempting to hit one of the officers. Police were called to the Bondi Beach Bar after reports of a fight that involved Surat’s boyfriend.

According to Kate Kimble, a Fort Collins police spokeswoman, while the responding officers were gathering information from Bondi Beach employees about the fight, Surat allegedly “shoulder-checked the bouncer and an officer and then pulled her boyfriend from the area.”

Now, almost two months later, the Colorado police officer who slammed Surat has been exonerated and permitted to return to work.

According to Denver 7, Fort Collins Police Services concluded its internal review which cleared Officer Randy Klamser of any wrongdoing.
