PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A former Philadelphia police lieutenant accused of slapping a woman to the ground after last summer’s Puerto Rican Day parade (see previous story) was acquitted today in a Philadelphia courtroom.

In a non-jury trial, Judge Patrick Dugan today ruled that Jonathan Josey was not guilty of simple assault when he struck Aida Guzman, 39, in the face.

Guzman, who speaks Spanish, had testified through a translator that she had been struck by Josey with a closed fist to her mouth.
