Investigation underway after Rio Vista officer body slams Black Woman
“I was scared. I’m not going to lie. Because at the end of the day, that’s a police officer, and they can do what they want to do,” she said.
Her family wants justice.
“I want to see the same aggressive action that he took with my child done to him. Yes, I would like to see him fired,” Payne said.
According to police, Thomas and Payne have been charged with resisting arrest and obstructing an investigation.
Dailey said the family’s videos only show a portion of the incident and he plans to release the officers’ body camera videos by the end of the week to “show the totality of this situation.”
Dailey said a third car arrived on the scene with more family members who were “confrontational and uncooperative.” He said officers had to request assistance from the Solano and Sacramento County sheriff offices to deal with the crowd.
He added that two other relatives who were detained during the traffic stop tried to escape the patrol car by kicking the door and window. They were charged with felony vandalism.
