This is the moment a security guard at Wireless Festival was caught on camera appearing to slap a party-goer to the ground after she seemed to attack him.

The video, which has been seen more than 187,000 times on Twitter, begins with the woman in a pink top appearing to lash out at the man in a high-vis jacket at the festival in Crystal Palace Park, London.

One of his colleagues seems to be wrestling with another partygoer on the ground as the scenes unfold.

The woman attempts to kick the man away from the person pinned to the ground. She takes a tumble to the ground as two more people join the fray – one appearing to kick one of the guards while the other confronting the second worker.

As the commotion continues, one of the guards gets back to his feet and then apparently slaps the woman to the ground.

A huge crowd who are watching the scenes unfold shout and groan as the "slap" pushes her onto the floor, where she remains unresponsive.

Wireless Festival, which takes place in London and sees hip-hop and other urban acts perform, had huge names such as Drake, Skepta and Future this year.

The video of the security guard slapping the woman to the floor wasn’t the only controversial moment from the weekend.

American rapper ‘ A Boogie With Da Hoodie’ was arrested before he was due to perform.

The hip hop star, real name is Julius Dubose, was scheduled to perform at the London festival at Crystal Palace Park on Saturday afternoon, but had to be taken off the bill.

Fans were treated on the opening night (September 10) to the surprise appearance of American hip-hop star Drake, who was brought out by headliner Future.

Daily Star has approached Wireless Festival and the Metropolitan Police for a comment.
