Transcript for Police release bodycam video of 'offensive' arrest of woman
Gio, thank you. A police confrontation caught on camera that's raising new questions this morning. A police officer is accused of using ex-successive force against a 22-year-old woman and she's now speaking out. Steve osunsami is in Atlanta with more on this. Good morning, Steve. Reporter: Good morning to you, Cecilia. We don't see what happens before the officer pulls this young woman over. Police say he was responding to a hit-and-run and the police chief this morning says he is disgusted and embarrassed by what happened. Driver's license, proof of insurance. Reporter: Police are putting sunshine on this routine traffic stop that turned violent. Tell you what, go on and step out. Reporter: Police body camera shows one officer making an arrest Friday. Are you serious? Have you lost your freaking mind? Reporter: 22-year-old Jasmine Shepard is begging the officer not to arrest her. As she turns around it's not clear how but she ends up on the concrete with the officer on top of her. They know what they did was completely uncalled for. Reporter: Sheppard said they used excessive force. I can't breathe. I'm telling him to get up. Reporter: People passing by recorded this cell phone video showing a second officer joining in. One of them beating her with a baton. Oh. Reporter: Here's what one says when the beating is over. Send medical this way. No, shut your mouth. If you do anything other than what you're told to I'll kick you in the teeth. Do you understand me? Reporter: Police are investigating. I was disappointed in the officers. I was disgusted by what I saw, what I heard and I was embarrassed by it. Reporter: They've charged this woman with leaving the scene of an accident, resisting arrest and assault but because of this video authorities are now considering dropping the charges. Cecilia. Wow, it's stunning video indeed.
