The mom in the following video was pulled over by a police officer for allegedly talking on a cell phone while driving. She was, however, able to prove that she was not using a cell phone, so the cop decided to write her a ticket for driving 5 miles per hour over the speed limit instead.
The mom wanted proof that she was speeding, so she asked the cop to see the video from the dash cam. The cop ordered her back in the car. When she disobeyed he said he was going to arrest her, so she got back in the car.
The cop said he wanted her back in the car because she was impeding traffic, but he later forces her to the ground in the middle of the road.
The cop then pulls her out of the car, shoots her with a taser gun and places her under arrest, leaving her children alone in the car for 40 minutes.
“I was driving with my hand on my cheek, and I think that’s what he saw,” Harmon told Vieira. “After I had given him the chance to look in my purse, check for a cell phone, then he manufactured the ticket with speeding. Again, I told him that he was wrong; I wasn’t speeding, either. Then we went back and forth.”
The mom was then cited for four offenses: speeding, talking on a cell phone while driving, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
All charges were dropped after prosecutors were shown this video:
The mom has now decided to file a lawsuit against the department.
