CHICAGO (AP) — Dash-cam video shows a Chicago police officer slamming a robbery suspect to the ground after she got out of a car with her hands up.
The video was released Friday as part of an effort by Chicago’s new police chief to increase transparency and rebuild trust that was hurt by cases of excessive force, particular against African Americans.
Two officers involved in the woman’s 2011 arrest have been stripped of their police powers pending a new review.
Thirty-four-year-old Tiffani Jacobs was driving a getaway car after her boyfriend robbed a McDonald’s at gunpoint. Police say she tried to run down an officer, who then shot her twice. She continued to flee until other officers caught up with her. During the arrest, officers shocked her several times with stun guns.
