Charges Dropped Against Mother After Officer’s Body Cam Video Leaked

Charges Dropped Against Mother After Officer’s Body Cam Video Leaked

All charges have been dropped against the mother and daughter in the viral video showing a police officer arresting the mother when the police were called out. The charges were dropped only after the body cam footage from the police officer was leaked to Youtube. Additional leaked information also brought to light a 2013 incident when the same officer used a taser at Dunbar High School.

Officer Martin was suspended for 10 days without pay and has now resumed work. Additionally, Officer Martin will go through retraining and will not return to the neighborhood where the viral incident took place. The family of the mother has asked that the officer instead be fired.

Officer Martin has appealed the disciplinary action taken against him.
