The video tape shows how a teen girl is rolling around drunk on the ground in a car park with her mother that is obviously trying to talk sense to her. They are confronting for a while when several people stop by to see what’s going on. The Phoenix police arrives the scene and when the 15 year old girl suddenly is trying to walk away a police officer is running and slamming her onto the ground. It looks very disturbing and violent. She wasn’t threatening the police officer nor trying to run away, but still he brutally knocked her down to the pavement before he arrests her.
Police have begun a criminal and internal investigation into the officer’s actions and he has been placed on administrative leave immediately.
