As reported by ABC13.com:
RICHMOND, Texas — A Richmond Police officer is on leave and the Texas Rangers are investigating after a video of a traffic stop raised serious questions about the officer’s conduct.
The dashcam and body worn camera videos were obtained exclusively by ABC13 Eyewitness News.
On Jan. 31, Officer Bradley McNeal pulled over Izzy Moreno for allegedly having a back light out on her car near Second and Morton Street in Richmond. Shortly after Moreno stopped her car, Officer McNeal is seen on dashcam video as telling Moreno to get out of the car.
After Moreno began asking why she needed to get out of the car, McNeal is seen on video pulling Moreno out.
Within 30 seconds of the officer and Moreno having contact, you can see on video that McNeal used a sweeping motion to put Moreno on the ground.
Backup officers were called and Moreno was placed under arrest.
“I didn’t know what was going to happen,” Moreno said. “I’ve never been in a physical fight with another girl, much less being manhandled that way.”
Moreno was hauled off to jail and charged with several offenses, including assaulting a peace officer.
