Video shows Texas officer violence arrest wife, daughter

FORT WORTH, Texas – Police in Texas are investigating a white officer shown on video wrestling a black woman on the ground for the arrest of her and her teenage daughter.

The episode began in a Fort Worth neighborhood Wednesday when an officer, who was given the name of Jacqueline Craig had a fight with a man who she said had confronted her 7-year-old son for the clutter.

The unknown officer grabs Craig in a conversation that quickly escalates. Craig’s daughter tries to push her mother away, but the officer forces both on the ground.

The video, viewed more than 1 million times was posted on Facebook by a woman identified by The Dallas Morning News as Craig’s cousin. Craig’s lawyer confirmed her involvement.

The police said in a statement Thursday that they’re aware of the video and Internal Affairs investigates.
