An investigation is now underway after footage shows a LA county deputy slamming a woman to the ground after she tried to record the arrest of a man outside a grocery store in Lancaster.
According to ABC7 LA, the incident took place on June 24th. The outlet reported, that the man and woman were allegedly shoplifting inside the grocery store. While the woman was filming the man’s arrest she yelled at officers telling them not to touch her and then she was suddenly slammed on the ground. The man who was being arrested then yelled ‘Don’t slam her down like that’ and said that the woman has cancer.
After the woman was slammed another person yelled out trying to get the officer to stop. “I was disheartened. That could’ve been my grandmother, my aunt, my sister. As you see, the lady in the video was just simply recording her husband’s interaction with the deputies and they came over and attacked her. I would say attack – he grabbed her by her neck and slung her down,” said Raycine Ector.
