A police officer is Big Spring, Texas was filmed dragging a handcuffed pregnant woman on the ground on Sept. 23.
Marcos Chavera and Teresa Sanchez filmed the incident.
Chavera recalled the incident to KWES:
He told her to put her stuff on the hood, she took a step back and said no. Right when she did that, he just grabbed her and pretty much took her to the ground. He started trying to handcuff her, she was on the phone the whole time. After he did cuff her, he called for back up already.
Sanchez recalled what the woman said:
“I’m pregnant, you’re hurting my arms, you broke my wrist.”
He turned her arm up pretty bad when he was trying to get her second arm behind her.
I don’t think it was right the way she was being treated, nobody should be treated like that. It was awful seeing her being dragged like that especially in all that gravel and rocks.
Sanchez said that she has been attacked for recording the evidence and posting it on Facebook, but she feels recording the incident was the right thing to do.
The Big Spring Police Department is investigating the video, and says the woman was wanted for possession of marijuana, reports KOSA.
