Florida Woman's Face Destroyed by Cops in Horrifying DUI Stop [Warning: Graphic Video]

Categories: Crime

Early in the morning on August 10, Christina West was pulled over by police after crashing her vehicle on the roads of Tallahassee. A video affixed to the cop cars captured the bust and exposed what may be one of the most violent and horrifying DUI stops in recent state history.

Cops ripped the 44-year-old woman out of a police car and slammed her face into the pavement as she screams.

"I was shocked to see this," her attorney, Fred Conrad of Tallahassee, told Live Leak. "This was disturbing. I could not believe that I saw that happening in Tallahassee, Florida."

State Attorney Willie Megs called the footage one "the most disturbing videos" he's ever seen.

Warning: Graphic footage.

Sickening as the video is, the aftermath may be even worse.

When a police officer tells you to do something just Do it! Why pissed them off? why act stupid and talk shit? She obvious refused arrest when they told her get out of the car and started to struggle with the cops...I don't think it was fair what happened to her but we must obey the law, shut the fuck up when a cop talks to you and do as told...

This woman just had an auto accident, yet not one officer asked her if she was okay,did she know her name, what year it was, who is the current President & what her address was.  They did not call for Emergency services to take her to the hospital, where she would have been evaluated, blood drawn & would have had all their answers to how much alcohol was in her blood stream at the time of the crash & could have finished his paperwork there.  She would have been given a ticket upon her release to appear in court.   A good lawyer will have no problem telling a jury, this is standard professional police operating procedure , what you see on the video is a straight out attack on a vunerable woman, who is smaller in height & weight, as well as, outnumbered.  Yes, she had been drinking but, thanks to the police, you will never know if her actions were from being drunk or sustained head trauma from the accident , as they failed to administer professional protocol & then to slam her head face first causing more reckless damage, where violence was completely uncalled for but, avoidable.  This  shows these officers to be highly dangerous to the community and has brought shame to those in law enforcement, that do their job as quiet heros among us.  Nobody is dismissing she drank, she had an accident but, to be a woman hurt, alone with numerous men, who are in control of your existance with no one to help, that is a fear you never get over & sorry, there is no amount of anxiety medication, that quells it.

This is a prime example of the militarization of the police forces here in Amerika.  We have become a fascist state where it is okay for the police to abuse the citizens they are charged to protect and serve.  When police departments prefer to don Battle Dress Uniforms and eschew the traditional Blue uniform it signifies a paradigm shift from viewing the citizen as needing protection to being the enemy.  

Anybody that does not see the problem with this arrest is probably affiliated with, if they are not an law enforcement  officer.  Welcome to the Socialist States of Amerika.

I'm sorry but I saw nothing in that video that could have caused that much damage. Seriously the drunken woman was not compliant, belligerent and was threatening them and calling them names. Maybe she shouldn't drink and drive? The way she was acting she shouldn't drink at all. I didn't see the cops do anything unnecessary to restrain her. She needs a job not a settlement.

Why are so many cops so worthless?

How is it every loser from high school goes on to be a cop?

I watched this and it looks like she ended up on the ground because she tried to get away from the police while they were handcuffing her. Not only that, when she stops screaming, she doesn't sound like she's in pain. I think the injuries were caused by her accident, or maybe her husband gave her that black eye. I am fed up with drunk drivers and am happy to see the police get them off the road.

COPs in these towns are such pussies. To abusively pin down a woman in such way to the pavement would only be needed if you are a fat lousy sad human being with a small dick. Go the the gym, get some confidence stop looking like a donut, and you can be in full control without being such a lame scambag where you need to hurt ladies, even if they are drunk, wrong and violating the law. it's not like she was robbing a bank, or had a gun on her. Garbage COPs draining our tax dollars at pizza/donuts joints, not doing the right thing. The DUI lady was a mother. Just obscene.

Resistance to authority is a greater crime, right? That's how cops think. Why can't they reason? Why can't they listen? Why do they have to CHOOSE to be perpetrators of violence? Is it easier to be cruel and hurt another human being than to let a person say whatever they want to say? I don't understand the logic of abuse of power.she wasn't going to fight them physically, she wasn't going to run away. this isn't a deranged dangerous criminal, this was a woman who had an accident because she was drunk. those methods were excessive and the slow walking of the other cops who seemed not to care about her screams is even more worrying than the violence itself.

1.  Don't drink and drive.

2.  Follow the law enforcement officers' instructions.

3.  Don't run your mouth.

Why does this surprise anyone?  When  something like this happens, the cops are put on admin leave pending an investigation.  The best part of it is that they are being paid.  i blame the media for not doing their due diligence.  They, the media, are only interested in the next big thing,  Most of the time we just see the beating and not the consequences after the fact.

@Ines248 thats crazy! Are you telling me you'd feel more safe walking down ghost town in Oakland than in a police station! These cops deserve everything that happens to them! The woman will get away with crashing into a house and all her bad deeds cause of these tools but please most cops do a good job under awful circumstances!

@anon You're stupid fuckin' asshole. If it takes a whole squad of out of control cops to handcuff one woman, what would they do with a real threat? And you don't abuse people just because they are drunk. Again, you are a moronic asshole.

@dqyz My opinion is that a majority of law enforcement officers are insecure little pussies.  I mean, they signed up for that job, it's like they chose to be an asshole.  I didn't elect them.  

To everyone that says "Just do as they say and you won't get hurt"...well that's just an awful way to go about things.  The citizens of Nazi Germany did that as well, look how well that turned out.  I disagree, DO NOT succumb to authority if they are in the wrong.

I know, right!? Any good, appropriate cop would let the lady say her piece, then respond appropriately. Snarling at her incessantly, not allowing her even one minute to speak. This is extremely juvenile and even criminal behavior. Slamming a woman into the ground that hard can result in broken bones and even bruised or lacerated organs. A cracked skull guarantees death if not treated. Even so, some die at the hospital. Bleeding on the brain and swelling that crushes it into the skull causes herniation--the brain actually swells down into the spinal column, incapacitating lower brain function necessary for respiration and heart function.

These cops are bullies and sadists, period.

If you can assure me that when they broke her bone on her face internally, when they smashed her face against the hard ground, that the cops knew that she could not die from internal bleeding or something else gone more bad, then I will trust they know the consequences of doing stupid things like that. I heard some people were in the hands of cops , they broke their bones internally , other parts etc, and they bleed internally to death cause all they saw was little blood on the ground and wiped w their dirty feet...

@ANGEL @Dushman_Kush You sound like a complete idiot. You've probably been arrested for DUI yourself. The cops were wrong -- mostly. On the other hand, I am sick of drunken fools getting on the road and sometimes killing innocent people. The cops have seen a lot of that behavior.

@jjjj733jjjj @Dushman_Kush and she had no right to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. She also shouldn't have pushed against the cops and resisted arrest. She got what she deserved for drinking and driving. Luckily only she got hurt. If she would have crashed into someones house or another vehicle driving down the road and killed someone I bet everyone attitude would be different. She reaped what she sowed.
