The original poster of the Instagram video, photographer Michael Ade, claimed in his post that Sweetin was thrown to the ground while trying to lead a group of peaceful protesters away from the highway.

“It pained me to see @JodieSweetin being thrown to the ground by members of the LAPD as she tried to lead a group of peaceful protesters off the highway… SMH @LAPDHQ what are you all doing?

Jodi is the definition of a real one and luckily she’s okay! But for others who choose to protest today, proceed with caution and keep your head spinning. It’s going to be a very long summer.’
