Shocking video 'shows POLICE officers bodyslamming woman onto pavement after she was pulled over 4 talking on her cell phone

Michelle Jordan, LAPD attack

Michelle Jordan, a 34-year-old mother and registered nurse, was pulled over by police for talking on her phone while driving in Tujunga, California and initially refused to comply with their requests. But a video shows her climbing out of the car and being repeatedly thrown to the ground. When the two officers eventually put Jordan in the car, they appear to share a congratulatory fist bump. Jordan sustained horrific bruising and cuts to her upper body and face (right) and has filed complaints against the officers.

A shocking video shows the moment two Los Angeles Police Department officers apparently grabbed a female motorist and bodyslammed her twice to the ground in a parking lot.

Michelle Jordan, a 34-year-old mother and registered nurse, sustained horrific bruising and cuts in the attack, which took place after she was pulled over for talking on her mobile phone.

The brutal arrest was captured by a surveillance camera after the officers followed her car into a Del Taco restaurant parking lot in the Tujunga area on August 11.

Officials told the Los Angeles Times that Jordan had ignored the officers' orders to stay in her car and began arguing with them.

On the video, obtained by NBC4, she is seen getting out of the car before she is knocked to the ground by one of the officers.

 

'A short time later while still handcuffed another encounter occurred between Jordan and the officers and she was taken to the ground a second time,' a statement released by LAPD admitted.

After getting up and moving towards the patrol car, an officer picks her up and then bodyslams her to the ground. As she sits in the car, the two officers appear to fist bump in celebration.

Eyewitness Raymond Branch, who was outside the Del Taco, was shocked by the confrontation.

'The first part, I believe they had a right to arrest her for resisting, but the second part was overboard,' Branch said.

Jordan and her lawyers admit that she was arguing and accepted her arrest. But they maintain she was treated with unnecessary force and have filed a personal complaint against the officers.

'She made some unwise moves,' her attorney Sy Nazif told ABC7. 'But certainly nothing that warranted a physical assault from the LAPD.

'If anyone on the street attacked an innocent woman, they would be in jail. We expect the LAPD officers to be held to the same standard.'

The LAPD has launched an investigation. Both officers - one with 22 years of service, the other a probationary officer with 10 months experience - have been placed

'My initial review of the officers' statements and the recorded video cause me to have serious concerns about this Use of Force,' LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in a statement.

'We will investigate this thoroughly and hold our officers accountable for their actions.'

Jordan was arrested on suspicion of interfering/resisting arrest and later released.

It is the latest incident involving apparently rough arrests by LAPD officers.

Earlier this month, 20-year-old skateboarder Ronald Weekley Jr. was tackled and pinned to the ground outside his Venice home, in an arrest that was caught on a mobile phone. An internal investigation has been launched into the arrest.

On Monday, Deutsche Bank executive Brian Mulligan filed a $50 million lawsuit against the department, claiming two officers held him captive and beat him on May 15.
