VIDEO: Black woman calls 911 because she was scared of cop during a traffic stop

August 5, 2016

Earlier this year, after being pulled over during an alleged traffic violation, 28-year-old Earledreka White called 911 because she was afraid of the officer who had pulled her over, the Houston Chronicle reports. While requesting that another officer be sent to the scene to better handle the situation, the arresting officer twisted her arm, pushed her against her car and become unjustly physical during an otherwise peaceful interaction. White was placed in cuffs, charged with resisting arrest, and jailed for two days.
