Kathie Lee & Hoda: Texas Grandmother Thrown To Ground During Traffic Stop
A 77-year-old grandmother in Texas was pulled over for speeding. She was going 66 mph in a 50 mph zone. The police officer asked her for her drivers license, registration and insurance and she said she had a bladder infection and had to go to the bathroom. She persisted that she had to go to the bathroom and he must hurry up. He told her no and then said he would arrest her and she said go ahead, so he proceeded to. He opened the door and twisted her arm to pull her out. The lady said he hurt her and he will be in trouble for this. He said get out of the vehicle because she is under arrest and proceeded to pull her out of the vehicle onto the ground and pulls her up and cuffs her!
All of this was caught on the dash cam and he had a camera on his uniform, which it looked like he tried to cover up during the incident. Kathie Lee said granny could have gotten out of the car nicely. Hoda said granny had a urinary tract infection, she had to go and please don’t push granny around. She said when you are taking a 77-year-old woman and pulling her out of her car and onto the concrete, there is a mistake being made somewhere. The police department is standing behind the officer because what he did was proper. Hoda said it was his tone that seemed to escalate the situation. They took a poll and 14% said it was not okay and 86% said it was not okay what he did.
