The Miami officer who was caught on video punching a woman in the face at the Miami International Airport on Wednesday night has since been relieved of duty, TMZ reports.

Police director Alfredo Ramirez III tweeted out his disapproval on Thursday, shortly after video of the assault began circulating, saying that the involved officers have been let go.

Miami mayor Carlos Gimenez called the officer's actions "appalling."
