Two Los Angeles Police Department officers are under investigation stemming from a use of force incident caught on tape showing a woman being slammed to the ground twice, once while in handcuffs.

Michelle Jordan, 34, of Sunland was pulled over last Tuesday on Foothill Boulevard and Saluda Avenue for a cellphone violation. She drove into a Del Taco restaurant parking lot, where the incident was recorded on surveillance video.

The married mother, who works as a registered nurse, got out of her car. Moments later, the video shows her being slammed to the pavement and handcuffed. The officers picked her up, put her against the patrol car and patted her down. Nearly two minutes later, the two officers pushed her down to the ground a second time. She was pulled back up and placed in the back seat of the cruiser. She was cited for resisting arrest.

“We have a defenseless woman in a sundress, two fully armed police officers with training in various restraining devices that they could have used, and instead they used brutal force to take a woman down to the ground for no reason,” said one of the woman’s attorneys, Arthur Corona.

The attorney says that the most egregious aspect of the officers’ behavior was the “fist bump” gesture the officers shared at the end.

“The simple word is outrage,” said the woman’s other attorney, Sy Nazif. “If anyone on the street attacked an innocent woman, they would be in jail. We expect the LAPD officers to be held to the same standard.”

The officers are with the LAPD Foothill Division, the same division whose reputation was tarnished for its involvement in the notorious Rodney King beating more than 20 years ago. One of the officers involved in this alleged use of force incident is a 22-year veteran. The other is a probationary officer only 10 months on the job.

LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck responded in a statement, saying “My initial review of the officers’ statements and the recorded video cause me to have serious concerns about this use of force. We will investigate this thoroughly and hold our officers accountable for their actions.”

PT – Slamming a woman to the ground when she’s in handcuffs?? That’s real tough. The fact that they gave each other a fist bump afterwards, shows that they are nothing but low life thugs.

  1. Is it a wonder when we find little redeemable values in the generations? When our so-called leaders, the judges, the prosecutors, the police, the administrators are knowingly corrupt and corruptible then they are deemed contemptible.

  2. There’s no excuse for the officer’s actions, but there has to be more to the story than the video shows.

  3. Lets see the Fuckers fist pump while they are being led away in cuffs themselves, ANIMALS!

  4. I’m sorry that this happened to this young lady. Let’s hope the officer’s,sheriff’s department and the county have to pay her for the trauma they caused an innocent woman.

  5. THIS IS SAD TWO GROWN MEN FEEL THEY HAVE TO ABUSE A HANDCUFFED FEMALE TO FEEL LIKE TUFF GUYS . I FEEL SORRY FOR THE WOMAN IN THER LIVES !!!!!!!!
