LOS ANGELES (AP) — A bipolar woman who was punched by a California Highway Patrol officer as she walked on a Los Angeles freeway has been taken into custody after being spotted on the same stretch of road.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1MdxIa5 ) says Marlene Pinnock was spotted on the right shoulder of Interstate 10 near La Brea Avenue around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.

A CHP report says she ran into traffic lanes when officers tried to detain her. She was removed from the road and taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.

In 2014, a motorist recorded a CHP officer punching Pinnock — who was on the ground — at least nine times on the same freeway. The officer resigned and Pinnock received a $1.5 million settlement.
