(AP) A police officer seen on video punching a woman at a Philadelphia street party is being suspended for 30 days as of Thursday with the intent to dismiss.


Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey took what police called "commissioner's direct action" on Wednesday in the case of Lt. Jonathan Josey following Sunday's events during a festival associated with the city's Puerto Rican Day parade.


Prosecutors earlier said a disorderly conduct charge against the woman was being withdrawn.


The video shows someone else throwing a liquid toward police officers. The woman is seen spraying something from a can. The video then shows the woman being struck in the face and falling to the ground.


The president of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police says Josey is eager to tell his side of the story to internal investigators.
