Video of a young woman's arrest in Arcata, California is gaining widespread attention online after it was posted on Facebook this weekend.
Actions from both the woman and from the police officers are sparking outrage online. The events in question surround a traffic stop made by Humboldt State University Police.
The woman, 20-year-old Samantha Alonso Luna, was arrested for giving a false identification, public intoxication and then resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
Police said the incident started as a traffic stop when they saw another passenger hanging out of the car's sunroof. Then Alonso Luna, who was also in the vehicle, was asked to provide her information.
That's when video shows the beginning of the verbal argument between Alonso Luna and police officers. The argument appears to begin over Alonso Luna's last name.
The officer then asks Alonso Luna to get out of the car. When she refuses, the officer then opens the car door and appears to drag Alonso Luna out.
The scuffle turns pretty violent, with Alonso Luna immediately grabbing the female officer's long blonde hair and not letting go. Alonso Luna is then pushed against the side of the vehicle and onto the ground.
Eventually, Alonso Luna's friends who are still in the vehicle are heard shouting, "Sam, stop resisting!"
The assisting officers repeatedly demand Alonso Luna to let go of the female officer's hair, to which she refuses. The female officer is finally heard saying, "Cut my hair, I don't care." One of the other officers cuts her hair off to release Alonso Luna's grip on it.
The arresting officer in the video, Janelle Jackson, was working with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to enforce underage drinking laws.
Humboldt State University Police Chief Donn Peterson told KAEF-TV when the officers conducted the traffic stop, it appeared several occupants of the vehicle were intoxicated and underage.
"Beyond that, we're still investigating this, and I really don't want to say too much more," Peterson said.
Peterson also said there is more video footage that has not been shared on social media that could shed light on the truth of the situation.
"The video that's posted on social media, the one that I saw, started quite a long ways after the incident began, so it's not inclusive of everything," Peterson said.

Iran player Milad Mohammadi was hailed by supporters across the globe after producing 'the greatest throw-in in World Cup history' during his team's defeat to Spain.
In the dying stages, with his team trailing 1-0, the wide man, kissed the ball and pointed to the sky before performing a forward roll as he shaped to throw.
But for some reason, he decided against letting go of the ball, aborting the throw-in at the last second.
Did he bottle it or just get it wrong? Who knows?
Mohammadi, who started the match as a substitute, did eventually take the throw-in, choosing to send it back towards his own half rather than launching it into the penalty area.

The vegans are coming! The vegans are coming! Someone get me steak immediately! From what I’ve heard, it works just like garlic on vampires.
Stupidity struck again over the weekend at a Bay Area festival in California when vegan activists — who promote “species equality” — stormed the festival stage and protested.
Don’t worry. People at the King of the County BBQ Challenge & Music Festival in Martinez, Calif. didn’t take the protesters seriously, either.
Members of animal rights “platform” Direct Action Everywhere thought it would be a great idea to protest a barbecue festival on Father’s Day weekend, when people barbecue almost as much as Independence Day. Activists held up signs that read, "It's not food. It's violence."

Chinese media have mocked US President Donald Trump over plans to impose 25% tariffs on $50bn worth of Chinese goods, saying "wise men build bridges but fools build walls".
Mr Trump announced the tariffs on Friday, accusing Beijing of intellectual copyright theft.
China retaliated, saying it would impose an additional 25% tariff on 659 US goods worth $50bn.
Stock markets fell after the announcements amid fear of a trade war.
The US had earlier warned that it will impose even more tariffs should China retaliate.
Mr Trump said the tariffs were "essential to preventing further unfair transfers of American technology and intellectual property to China, which will protect American jobs."
The Chinese product lines that have been hit range from aircraft tyres to turbines and commercial dishwashers.
Senator Ted Cruz has claimed the title as King of the Court after defeating Jimmy Kimmel in a charity basketball game.
The Republican politician, 47, and the late night host, 50, brought out their best moves and trashiest talk for the basketball game Saturday at Texas Southern University.
The charity game was launched after comedian Kimmel poked fun at Cruz comparing him to a blobfish and the senator responded on Twitter with a one-on-one challenge on the court.
Look at the left-wing media mocking Pres. Trump as he announced he would run for president of the United States. They still have yet to let up on bashing him nonstop.

As the underdog in Colorado’s Democratic 6th District House primary on June 26, former Obama administration official Levi Tillemann has launched a campaign ad aimed at grabbing people’s attention. But the attention he’s receiving may not be the kind he was hoping for.
In the ad titled, “This Will Save Lives,” Tillemann volunteers to take a blast of pepper spray to his own face, while making the case to arm every school classroom in America with a can of pepper spray to stop school shooters.
After criticizing President Donald Trump’s endorsement of the idea to arm school officials and teachers to help defend against threats, Tillemann says in the ad:
“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new. Empower schools and teachers with nonlethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”
Tillemann then explains how powerful pepper spray is and why it would be less of a risk to keep in classrooms than a gun.
“Trust me, this will stop anyone in their tracks,” says Tillemann, before being liberally sprayed in the face with pepper spray.
The next scene shows Tillemann saying, “Wow, that’s intense,” before dunking his head in a tub of sudsy water in an attempt to remove the substance from his face.
“It’s incredibly painful, and now, I just can’t see anything,” Tillemann says. “It’s just unbearable. It’s like lava in your eyes.”
He’s then seen spraying his eyes with a water hose while the message on the screen reads, “There are more than 300 million guns in the US.”
Tillemann says that part of building a better future for America involves making our schools safe again, and that nonlethal defense tools will save lives.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that whether illegal aliens suppress the wages of U.S. workers is “not the point” and that using language like “illegal aliens” was not constructive.
At a press conference on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Pelosi, “Yesterday you outlined your plan to get a better deal for American workers. Does permitting illegal aliens to enter the United States and work here suppress the wages of American workers?”
Pelosi said, “That’s not the point. Using terminology like ‘illegal aliens’ and ‘illegally entering the country’ is just not viewed as constructive. The fact is that we have, we must protect our borders, that is our responsibility.”
