A viral video that shows a Texas sheriff’s deputy pinning an 18-year-old woman to the ground sparked an investigation and led to the deputy getting placed on administrative leave.
Footage of the Tuesday incident in Forney, east of Dallas, shows Kaufman County Deputy Conner Martin, who is white, laying on top of the teen, who is black, and then taking her mother to the ground and arresting her.
The article goes on to state the following:
A body camera video released by the department shows Martin approach the barefoot and agitated teen after cops received multiple calls that she was suicidal and jumping into traffic, police said in a press release.
The video shows the officer questioning the woman about why she is so upset. While holding her arm he asks her several times to stay still but she refuses.
The teen identified by her mother as Nekia Trigg says multiple times to the officer “Why are you hurting me? I don’t want you to hurt me.”
Trigg eventually pulls away from the officer and he pins her down while she screams “I can’t breathe,” the video shows.

Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office posted a statement to their Facebook page about the incident.
Attorney Ben Crump tweeted a video an onlooker shot of the incident. Crump said, “This incident was handled horribly! Why did this Kaufman County Sheriff officer need to restrain this young lady in such an inappropriate manner?! Thankfully, an internal investigation has been launched into the actions of this officer!”
