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.
