(Chester, PA) -- The outrage has spread as fast as the video. With nearly eight-hundred-thousand hits in two days... the youtube video of a police lieutenant punching 39-year old Aida Guzman has gone viral... picked up by news networks across the country. Here in Chester... Guzman has retained attorney Enrique Latoison.
SOT Enrique Latoison: "Now that the whole thnig has worn off, or the initial adrenaline rush has worn off, now my client is actually dealing with the injuries she suffered and also the emotional injuries."
A short clip of the original video - zoomed in on Guzman - shows her spraying silly string in the direction of police officers. None of the officers seems to notice... and none of the silly string appears to hit Lt. Jonathan Josey. Yesterday (10/01), Guzman said she didn't shoot any silly string.
SOT Aida Guzman, Punched by Police Officer (reporter translates):
"I'm an an older woman, I'm 39 years old and I don't have enough time to be playing around or throwing water to be disrespecting any other person."
But today, her lawyer says she did shoot silly string into the air, and did not aim at any of the officers. He says they haven't decided yet on pressing charges or filing suit.
"My client is actually a very good person - a very understanding person - she has not made a rush to judgment - the same kind of rush to judgment that was made aginst her. My client is actually deliberating on how we're going to proceed from here."
Latoison says he intends to fight the charge of disorderly conduct police gave her... if it's not dropped first.
