Anderson's now-22-year-old elder daughter Jasmine, who originally posted the video on Facebook, does not clarify how she came upon it, only that she received an email.
The officer who handcuffed Anderson brutally punches her in the face, by some accounts with a closed fist.
That if you came out and harassed them.
Then, just out of eyeshot, the woman allegedly spits on one of the officers.
She has conducted surveys for threatened and endangered species, wetland delineations, bald eagle monitoring, riparian area and buffer enhancement plans, habitat management plans, vegetation surveys and other biological studies.
It immediately caused a stir both online and with the Salt Lake City police, whose chief issued a public statement on Wednesday, alleging that the matter was only brought to his attention after the video surfaced the previous day.
