Police Say They “Didn’t Choke” This Handcuffed Woman in the Back of a Squad Car

Dash cam footage shows an officer’s hands around a woman’s neck as she appears to be trying to get up.

Disturbing footage has surfaced online of a police officer holding down a handcuffed woman by her neck at the back of a police car.

The victim looks distressed and tries to get up.

Yet, another cop from the local police department says more force could have been used.

The woman being pushed down in the video has been identified as Tieshina Bey.

According to the police department, Officer Bridgette Heid was responding to a domestic violence call at a local McDonald’s car park.

Bey and her husband were having an argument, when the officer arrived.

Police claim that the woman refused to let the cop interview her partner.

This is when Heid decided to arrest her for disorderly conduct.

She then tries to force Bey into the patrol car.

The victim is heard shouting “Ma’am you have to tell me” as Heid impresses her hand upon her front, in a gesture that looks like choking.

Lieutenant Bradley Hetlet of the Kenosha police department says although the officer had the option to use c-spray or at a taser, what she did was also an approved tactic.

He says it may look like the officer was suffocating Bey, but that is not the case. Hied was performing a special manoeuvre that puts pressure on the neck area.

“In my mind, she was justified in using the amount of force that she did. In fact, she could`ve used more force than she did,” Hetlet adds.

The video emerged exactly on the incident’s one year anniversary.

The woman in the video did not press charges and according to court information she may have moved to Florida.
Officer Heid was not reprimanded and Lieutenant Hetlet says there is no need to do so.

This comes at a time when the public is questioning use of force by police officers.

In fact, a cop from Kenosha was recently suspended for 60 days for using excessive force on a man inside a grocery store while responding to an attempted burglary call.

    As Groucho Marx once said, “What are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?” ‘Don’t walk toward me’ is not a lawful order and is not justification for arrest. And regardless of that, strangling a person, whether they are handcuffed or not, is a violent crime. This cop needs to be fired AND arrested and charged NOW!!!

    choke
    verb
    (of a person or animal) have severe difficulty in breathing because of a constricted or obstructed throat or a lack of air.
    Sounds a lot like “a special maneuver that puts pressure on the neck area”, could be considered a “choke”. Do these pigs really believe the feces that expel from their mouths?

    He did not blink. When you contain complete eye contact without blinking it’s a sign that you are lying. Of course most people don’t understand body language and psychology.

    “a special manoeuvre that puts pressure on the neck area…” in other words, choking.
