Texas Woman Accuses Cop of Excessive Force

June 17, 2013  | 

A woman arrested by Arlington (Texas) Police last year has filed a lawsuit accusing an officer of using excessive force during the arrest.

Vanessa Aguilar is seeking unspecified damages in a lawsuit that accuses Officer Juan Rangel of grabbing her by the neck, slamming her to the ground and punching her before attempting to place her in handcuffs, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The incident occurred after Aguilar's father called police because he smelled alcohol on her breath when she came to pick up her 2-year-old son. The city attorney has called the lawsuit frivolous.

Yep, another nominee for "Mother-of-the-Year". Wanna bet she didn't comply with the Officers requests? And you got to give the father credit, his granddaughter is alive and not wrapped around a tree or another car. For once I agree with the city attorneys thoughts. Blues, Stay Safe.
