    Miami-Dade Police released an officer's body camera footage showing the arrest of a woman that led to the officer being placed on paid administrative leave.

    The footage, released Friday, shows the March 5th arrest of 26-year-old Dyma Loving from the perspective of Officer Alejandro Giraldo, who was placed on leave after a different cell phone video surfaced this week.

    According to an arrest report, officers responded to the scene on Southwest 201st Street after Loving and other woman, 22-year-old Adrianna Green, got into an argument with a male homeowner who allegedly threatened them with a gun. A separate report alleges Loving became irate and uncooperative while not obeying their commands.

    The body cam video shows Giraldo speaking with the two women about the incident as Loving repeatedly says she needs to call her kids.
