Complainant:

Citizen complains she was taken off the bus, and thrown to the ground.

Summary of Allegations:

The citizen alleges that the officer pulled her off the bus, and threw her to the ground for no apparent reason.

Summary of Findings:

The evidence shows the citizen was pulled off the bus by a transit officer. She was on the ground kicking when police arrived and then they handcuffed and arrested her.
The citizen does not differentiate between officers or acknowledge there were even multiple officers and when asked, does not remember a thing. The issue of Excessive Force is Exonerated.
However, the officer should have been running his belt tape, as the arrest was a disorderly conduct one. That issue is Sustained.
