Jogging Woman Arrested and Dragged Into Squad Car for Crossing Street Without ID

AUSTIN — A video has surfaced showing an athletic woman being harassed and arrested by two officers as she cried “I didn’t do anything wrong.”

The woman was jogging in her gym clothes by the University of Texas campus.

Officers were seen roaming the streets for hours in what a department spokesperson calls “pedestrian enforcement.”

She was exercising when the two fat officers stopped her and hauled her to jail.

She was exercising when the two fat officers stopped her and hauled her to jail.

Police statists claim that this was being done to monitor the crosswalks in order to “ensure the safety” of pedestrians.

The reality of the situation is that police do it to issue tickets for jaywalking, generating revenue for the government they protect.

Texas student Chris Quintero happened to be sitting at Starbucks across the street when he noticed the two officers placing the woman in handcuffs.

He immediately began filming the incident.

“I heard a cop shout at an innocent girl jogging through West Campus with her headphones on,” said Chris.

Allegedly, she was jaywalking.




When the two officers shouted at her to give them her ID, she apparently didn’t have it.

That’s when they initiated physical force to stop her from jogging.

She can be heard on the video pleading with the officers to let her go, crying and repeating “I didn’t do anything wrong!”

All of this, we are assured by the Nanny State, was “for her safety.”

The video then shows the police forcing her into the squad car and hauling her away.

UPDATE (02/23/14) Police Chief Angers Residents With Disturbing Statement. Apparently She Should be Grateful That Cops Didn’t Rape Her.

Adding fuel to the fire, the Austin police chief released a disturbing statement regarding the woman who was arrested.

Anger has poured on the department after he seemed to imply that the woman was lucky that the cops didn’t rape her, as they do in “other cities.”

“Quite frankly, she wasn’t charged with resisting. She’s lucky I wasn’t the arresting officer, because I wouldn’t have been as generous,” he said.

He quickly added, “In other cities there’s cops who are actually committing sexual assaults on duty, so I thank God that this is what passes for a controversy in Austin, Texas.”

Apparently she should be happy that cops didn't sexually assault her.

Apparently she should thank the cops for not raping her.

The criticism over his statement pressured him to release an apology shortly afterwards.

The Raw Story reported his apology as follows:

“During the press conference I attempted to place the arrest into context by bringing attention to the fact that law enforcement deals with many acts of serious misconduct,” Acevedo wrote. “This includes recent instances in the news of sexual assault by police officers in other cities. In hindsight I believe the comparison was a poor analogy, and for this I apologize. I stand committed to transparent leadership and will continue to engage the community we serve in an open, honest, and timely manner.”

        • Reaverbait

          Anyone driving on an urban or suburban road should be looking out for anyone crossing the road on foot.
          As for crosswalks – if anyone has to “slam on the brakes” because someone is using the clearly marked crossing they’re supposed to use, they’re a dangerous driver.

          • Jewls

            If someone has to “slam” on the brakes because of a “undercover” cop deliberately walking into the path of oncoming traffic (like above commentor was speaking of) then actually the “undercover”cop
            is dangerous and needs to get back to the station and take a desk job. Cops should not be putting the public at risk no matter what, and they do it all the time. Disgusting.

          • Reaverbait

            Where I live, the road rules are that when approaching a crosswalk, the driver *has* to slow down. Crosswalks? They’re there for pedestrian use. Pedestrians have right of way, and if a driver is too impatient to drive at a speed that enables them to stop, then should they really be allowed to drive a car?

          • Cheese

            Sure the drivers should be watching, but there are a shit-ton more factors to deal with while driving then there is walking… So the person crossing the STREET (which is made for vehicles to drive on) should be paying attention as well.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            Pedestrians ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!

          • ChrisBroekhof

            As a matter of law they do, and I have always questioned that law. Pedestrians have the best field of view, and the least amount of damage can be caused by their failure to pay attention to the other people walking around them. Drivers have to watch out for other cars, pedestrians, and anything else that might impede their travel because it can cause a serious accident. Why do drivers have to watch out for pedestrians, who have a better opportunity to see an oncoming car then a driver does a pedestrian?

            If the law allows for some responsibility to be put on the pedestrian then you might find that more of them try to cross the road during the most dangerous of times, and in all the wrong places and expect traffic to just stop. No matter how little time they give, no matter how much traffic there is. It is like expecting a train to stop for crossing car traffic. Physics weeps when people expect the car to stop on a dime for a person who can’t be bothered to understand that the law isn’t going to protect you from a mass of steel moving at speeds higher then 25 mph. It’s only going to punish the driver.

            Physics is the only set of laws that are truly absolute here. Pedestrians do not always have the right of way in reality, and exercising it is foolishness completely disregarding the accident that both driver and pedestrian are about to create. Look both ways before crossing a street, and use crosswalks on busy one’s. And drivers should always be prepared to stop, especially in a high pedestrian zone. Avoid them if you do not need to be there. Go around such zones unless your business lies within them.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            That is just the lazy selfishness of someone in too big a hurry. Drivers are moving faster so should pay more attention to what is going on. I have seen drivers speed around me when I am stopped to let a pedestrian pass. children die all of the time because of these arses. Legally, in every state of the Union, Pedestrians have the Right of Way.

          • Reaverbait

            ” Pedestrians have the best field of view”? Not always. People who are blind or have narrow fields of vision use crosswalks.
            It’s also a scientific fact that children often think cars are further away than they really are.

          • ChrisBroekhof

            I’m not opposed to the responsibility of an accident being on the hands of the driver. But it is also a scientific fact that you can cross the street safely. The point I am getting at is there is a lot of responsibility put on drivers. So much so that they are left to being aware of people who are not aware of them in a situation where it is scientifically proven to be harder for them to be aware of their surroundings. Driving is still a huge responsibility that, should you screw up this much, you deserve to be held accountable for. But I refuse to not hold to account the other party involved in an accident.

            Pedestrians, as a whole, are usually comprised of healthy adult individuals who usually do have the best field of view, and blind people cross the roads with assistance usually. Children are shuttled across roads with help from adults frequently. The two things above are relatively common because people realize the danger of the road. Disregarding that danger because some people in our society don’t operate like the rest of us is dangerous to road safety, which is tantamount.

            Even if these accidents are caused by a reasonable excuse of blindness, or just being a child physics does not go on vacation. Cars are dangerous, and the blind as well as children should use extra caution around them. And the pedestrians as well as the drivers around them should try to be aware of their presence and adjust their habits accordingly. But accidents are accidents, and by their very nature will still happen. Nothing changes that the responsibility of the crash falls on whoever caused it, and not simply the driver. If a person moves out in the road five feet from a car moving 25 mph (reasonable speed in a residential zone) that person will likely be hit before the driver can put their foot on the break pedal. If your concern is truly for the pedestrian victims of cars then having a law giving them right of way when the reality is that a mass of steel and aluminum moving at even slow speeds wins only encourages people to take their chances with the road. I mean if you get hit then at least you can sue… But most people forget that the chances of surviving a collision of an unstoppable object with a very movable one is pretty damn low.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            People walk into the road at crosswalks and are killed by selfish idiots on a regular basis because the selfish idiots have no respect for life. As I have said, children are killed at crosswalks all of the time because of selfish, careless, and ignorant drivers who are in a hurry to go watch American Idol or other such drivel.

          • bloodyspartan

            Half the idiots who walk into traffic are probably the same fools who pull out in front of a tractor trailer doing 70 and do 30 .
            Stupidity leads to death, wasteful but sometimes Darwin is right.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            Actually those are the same people who wait at cross walks at 2 am waiting for the light to change when there isn’t a car for 5 miles.

          • ChrisBroekhof

            BOTH should be responsible. You are responsible for your life when you are crossing a street. If you refuse that responsibility because the law says you can then you can suffer the consequences. No law is going to make a brake pedal stop a car on a dime, no law is going to change physics or science. But you as a pedestrian can. As a pedestrian you have 360 degrees of visibility, as a driver you have blind spots and traffic as well as pedestrians to look out for, all while driving 25 mph at the least. If you, next to a road, have no respect for the drivers on that road then you are just as much a part of the problem as the irresponsible drivers are.

            Honestly if you were right then trains would have to stop for cars crossing their tracks. All pedestrians should be extra careful around moving vehicles, because, as you said, many drivers are irresponsible. But you can counter that by showing responsibility as a pedestrian. If both have it then the problem will begin to diminish.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            I like the idea of having eyes in the back of my head. I would need that for 360 degree vision. Cars have mirrors for that. However, cars that don’t stop at crosswalks to let pedestrians pass are nothing more than selfish penises.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            I’ve also noticed that SUV drivers tend to act more rudely as if they are powertripping and don’t care about other human beings. This, of course, isn’t a hard and fast rule but it is common.

            http://azbikelaw.org/blog/3-year-old-squashed-to-death-in-crosswalk/

          • ChrisBroekhof

            Cars have mirror’s to help with that problem. But it doesn’t solve the problem that physics gives you. When you, a person, has to stop walking it takes maybe a step before it happens. When a car needs to stop tens of feet can go by, even hundreds before the person even puts their foot on the break. There can be hundreds of reasons for this, among them being the traffic that pedestrians should respect. When a person is driving the chances that another car is going to hit them is higher then a pedestrian crossing the road.

            Another point here is that nobody was arguing that cars should not stop at crosswalks. Nobody has proposed that they shouldn’t stop, or that pedestrians don’t have a right to cross the road. That is a straw man argument that everybody here agree’s with you on. But by no means do I think that right of way should belong absolutely to pedestrians.

          • hyp3rcrav3

            Legally, it does so this debate must have happened long ago and we are rehashing.

      In most states you are not required to have an ID if you are just walking and not driving/making store purchases/voting/etc. In TX (where victim is from) you are not required to carry an ID (unless you are driving, etc), you are only required to provide the officer with full name, address, and birthday IF lawfully arrested. She wasn’t under arrest when they asked for her ID that she is not even required to carry.

    something tells me to be afraid for her safety. an attractive, half dressed girl like her could easily be a victim of police gang rape. considering how bad police are i wouldn’t be surprised if it happened and she never comes forward :(. More important than harassment, I hope she is safe.

    • Jesuswasaradical

      I have the same gut feeling, James Dore. That is what I am most afraid of. It seems obvious that they would bring her right to the Police Station, but the “obvious” is no longer so. I am so frightened for her. If anyone has any information about her now, please post it. I don’t think someone screams like that if they are feeling safe. She is scared out of their mind for her own personal saftey, and for good reason. She is not safe in the hands of those wetiko men.

    I can just imagine those filthy men projecting their pent-up resentment and sexual repression onto that poor woman, and then, seeing that she had no ID, decided they were going to force her to come along with them and likely abused her rights even further.

      Actually, I think this is why we have neighbors and people called “civilians”.

      In addition: It’s beneficial of course that those neighbors and people called “civilians” actually know how to be a civil neighbor. Walking past such event as if nothing happened is not being a civil neighbor. I don’t think guns are needed just yet. There are plenty of steps to take before that one is necessary. My plea is that people cease defending themselves ego-maniacally and open up their hearts to defending their neighbors with a higher level of selfless passion.

  • Richard Harney

    While the cops are dicks for arresting her. She probably was jaywalking. I see so often when people cross the street wherever they want to or when the sign clearly says DON’T WALK or a solid red hand. If I was a driver at a red light I would have to stop or get a ticket for running a red light. I don’t get to just go through a red light because no one is around but pedestrians do it all the time.

      Not all cops are bad, but these guy’s crossed the line, and obviously need to be better trained in Human Relations. They could also go through a Marine Corps boot camps Fat Platoon. And if I’m having a crime against me I’ll call 911 after I pull 357, or 45, and I am better trained than 95% of cops. Cops are needed, but not in this case.

    • The Constitution

      I don’t call 911. I will handle it myself. If I catch a cop acting like that without backup and a gun on me it will be the last time. When shit hits the fan I will be the fan! 911 just brings trouble. The police are out of control. They are the real criminals and puppets for the money pulling the strings.

      Not a cop for sure. Especially if it’s you.

    I’m sick to death of police hassling obviously innocent clean cut people who are just going about their day, this young woman will never be able to job again without stressing over whether she will be assaulted again. They have just robbed a piece of her life away from her, somebody needs to stand up to these bullies. I don’t care if she was jaywalking, this is not something you get cuffed and hauled off to jail for. I think the thing with jaywalking is if they get hit by a car while jaywalking they don’t get to sue the other person’s insurance, and that should be it, unless they are impeding traffic. Slap them with a ticket, no big deal. I’m getting really pissed off at this kind of bullying. Cops like these need to be surrounded and told, hell no, we’re not going to take it anymore.

  • TB

    It would be so frustrating to know you did nothing wrong and know that you shouldn’t be arrested but yet have no control over it. This shit is just getting ridiculous. They think they can do whatever they want to do, to anyone and the sad thing is that they get away with it.

    WOW, how low is the standards across this country for being a cop? these loads are truly complete buffoons! Real tough stopping those joggers! She really should get a lawyer to go after these idiots, talk about out of control, these two obviously have nothing to do. Two useless air wasters

      When you find a “half” video involving the police, you might want to research it for yourselves and find out what really happened! The Campus police were there because of several complaints about that particular crossing and they issued 28 WARNINGS and only issued 7 citations! If they were there for revenue as suggested, they suck at it! lol The people like this woman that refused to give their identification and acted an ass got what they deserved. She was not arrested for exercising, she was not arrested for not having an ID, she was arrested for refusing to identify herself to the police for her warning or citation she was going to be issued. When you refuse to identify yourself, you go to jail. I’m so sorry haters…Go find another police article to hate on, she brought this on herself.

      • Shaun Arron Moorhead

        who the fuck is another human being to tell me i have to talk to them or tell them who i am. especially when im WORKING OUT. dont fucking bother me during my work out. why cause you got some special piece of metal on your chest and get to carry around a gun, that makes you boss? yea i think not

    • Shaun Arron Moorhead

      lol from statesmen.com lol. thats the biggest problem. its 6 officers words against one female student. who is to say whats true? i was in the army ive seen some fucked up shit and shit get covered up, people getting set up for article 15s. cruel torture of low ranking soldiers. and that shit gets pushed under the rug. being police officers does not make them good people.

  • Steve Plumlee

    This is our fault. We have let the cops get away with this type of thing for far too long. We , as a society , should be questioning the whole validity of our police officers as the majority are completely corrupt. They are So Shady and underhanded in the practice of “Policing” us and we just let them. We believe them above and beyond. We are taught they are the Good Guys. I have news for you, they are the Most corrupt and deceptive people in our society. They go “Undercover” and get a free pass to Break all the laws they see fit to not blow their cover. They pit neighbor against neighbor under the guise of ridden us of crime when they are the ones creating a lot of it.

    IF EVERY PERSON WHO IS ARRESTED FROM THIS POINT FORWARD WOULD NOT SETTLE OR PLEA THEIR CASE AND ELECT TO USE THEIR RIGHT TO A SPEEDY TRIAL… THE GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO PROSECUTE VIOLENT CRIMINALS AND LET EVERYONE ELSE GO BECAUSE THE COURTS ARE SO OVERCROWDED AND THE LABS ARE SO OVERWHELMED THEY COULD PROVIDE NO EVIDENCE IN TIME OF TRIAL TO CONVICT …. WAKE UP AND BE SMART PEOPLE…..

  • Shaun Arron Moorhead

    Showing patriotism and love for ones country does not mean bowwing down to law enforcement and government officials. We own this country and we give them power. IT CAN BE TAKEN.

    • Shaun Arron Moorhead

      and yes i do realize the what the deffinition of Patriotism is.

  • Shaun Arron Moorhead

    Showing Patriotism does not mean bowwing down to law enforcement and government officials. The People own this country we give them power and we can take it.
    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president”
    Theodore Roosevelt
    and the same is applied to law enforcement

  • Nick

    They should be fired with criminal charges brought up against them! Make them an example to all the cops out there to drop all their power trip BS!

  • Jim Fitzgerald

    THOSE FAT PIGS FROM AUSTIN SHOULD BE HOG-TIED AND THROWN INTO A PILE OF SHIT.

    i don’t see why the fuck we keep on letting them get away with this… we already know that cops are bad news. it is time to take action. we need to pick a day that we can all protest against these mother fuckers!

  • jj

    If that’s not kidnapping I don’t what is.

  • Raoul Eternale Livith

    And they wonder why they get no respect. Or get shot

  • Ricky Blaze

    This must have changed her outlook on society

  • Jeffery P Hamilton

    More like they made a lawful contact of the woman and rather than stop she ignored their verbal commands, escalating the situation. Likely if she’d have just carried ID with her and been a bit more respectful and cooperative this could have been avoided.

    • mikeinportc

      Since when do you need ID just to walk around? That’s total bs! I’ve been stopped just for walking (not across), and asked for ID. I just say “No, I’m just walking, not driving.” They don’t press the issue. It’s really disturbing , and depressing, that you( & surely lots of others) place blame on someone for not having ID while doing ordinary things, that don’t involve driving, or financial transactions. Is this the Soviet Union, or Aprtheid-era South Africa? Apparently so. :(.

  • Louis Cipher

    Cops over reacting because someone didn’t jump when they spoke. Cops need to learn they are for the public, not their egos. Too many ego cops for themselves.

  • Chris Schultz

    Here’s what I see. They wish to enforce the crosswalk as THE ONLY way to cross the street,which it is the only LEGAL way to cross the street. I’m sure jaywalking gets people hurt all the time because they just pop out from between cars…whatever. They detained her because she had no I.D. and because she was breaking A LAW. PERIOD. I see them trying to put her into the car and her kicking the door ,etc.
    It isn’t anything illegal. It’s cops who are doing what they were told to do by their bosses. It IS revenue collection,but that’s part of the job these days.

  • Chris Schultz

    As far as the cops walking out into crosswalks…a pedestrian in a crosswalk has the right of way. Too many people are too self absorbed and ignorant to understand this. If someone decides to walk out into a street ( as long as they are crossing at a walk signal,if there is one ) motorists have to stop. Again,enforcing an existing law. If someone hits the person who slams on the brakes,then they should receive a ticket for following too closely.

  • philfy

    Think bout cops 2 ppl ratio and the guns u can buy weather legal or illegal, if every1 stood up the police force would be shut down, it’ll be a civil up roar but who would win? Not them

  • greenthing

    I bet the cop went home and (cough) “fantasized” while pleasuring himself about manhandling this scantily clad young women. Especially the part where he dragged her down the alley and she brokedown screaming and crying while handcuffed. This certainly is an exciting passtime that this officer and supposed public servant has devised. Now how is this that much different then an abduction and sexual assault . Is she had been a flea infested scabie ridden lice infested excrement covered lunatic street person they would turn a blind eye before ever allowing him into their squad car.

  • Blah

    Man oh man someone should’ve beat the dog shit out of those fat fucks. I hope someone does to be honest.

  • Joshua Drake

    The problem is no one ever stops to help the people the police are harassing! people need to stand up to the Nazi police force in this country.

  • Julian Bartorelli

    Could have been a good story, I wish this site was more objective it its reporting though. I get it’s all about uprooting criminal cops but with a bit more journalistic integrity it might actually be well worth the read. Guess I’ll look up the story on the actual news.

  • oath keeping patriot

    Yeah he should be fired and all the cops fired from that department. You are public servents not all powerful gods.

  • Brad Canelo

    I hate these pedaphiles and rapists we have for cops nowadays…I HATE ALL OF THEM PIGS!!!!

    GUYS!!! There is a lot of flaming going on here over stupid things. (Is “flaming” the right term? Anyway… We’re on the same side! Put stupid shit aside and stick to the basics. Basics like, “how do we deal with these murderous thugs and brutal police state?”

  • david breaux

    I actually met a cop yesterday who was pretty awesome!

    But have met many more who were real power hungry assholes. Who know nothing about the constitution and violate it constantly thinking otherwise! Worse than criminal!

  • Ron

  • Śœarar Ó Murchadh

    Fire him and the entire force immediately

  • David Kelly

    OMG this isn’t even controversial. The woman was arrested for failure to identify. Apparently now a days the police can’t even physically stop someone. News flash people Jay walking (which the cops tried to stop her for first) is actually against the law. She had headphones on she didn’t have anything covering her eyes. If your stupid enough to do that with 2 cops right in plain sight and in uniform then I have no sympathy or empathy. Just as a note the Police chief didn’t imply anything about her being lucky she wasn’t raped. What he said is that, “Thank god this is one of the biggest controversies in Austin, Texas”. He then went on to say that in other cities they have problems with sexual assaults in their police departments.

    • Julian Bartorelli

      Yeah if that happened to you you wouldn’t be so supportive of the brave police officers putting their lives in danger to arrest this girl for crossing the damn street. I would be really fucking surprised to find anyone who has never jaywalked. I’m SURE if she saw the cops chasing her she would have stopped. Your lack of understanding is actually frightening.

      • David Kelly

        I also wouldn’t be stupid enough to cross the crosswalk without a walk signal with 2 cops standing in plain sight LOL. This isn’t even news worthy. If this was some dude this wouldn’t even be a story.
