  • A 65-year-old Georgia woman was dragged from her vehicle at a traffic stop

"I didn't expect that in America", Campbell told the television station.

"I didn't expect that especially in Alpharetta", she added.

According to ABC News, the Alpharetta Police Department posted the troubling video and included a statement from Public Safety Chief John Robison. "There are aspects about this video that simply do not represent our organization".

The incident took place at a busy intersection in the northern Atlanta suburb on the night of May 4.

Things escalated when an officer aggressively began screaming and cursing at Campbell. "Shut the f-k up and get out of the auto", after she declined to sign a citation she was given by another officer. When she would not comply, the officer opened the door and instructed her to step out of the vehicle.

In dashcam video of the incident that has now gone viral, an officer is heard asking the woman to sign a citation. "I don't like the issue of firing people", she said.

When backup arrived, a second officer tried to help pull her out of the vehicle. A physical struggled ensued, with Swerdlove attempting to pull the driver out of her vehicle.

In it you can see the incident go from a run-of-the-mill traffic stop, to one that ended with six officers trying to restrain a woman. Due to her behavior on the side of the road, and after noticing the auto had dark tint and there was someone in the backseat, the officer asked her to get out and at some point advised she was under arrest.

"No sir", Campbell said.

Swerdlove later added that she was resisting arrest, and he called for backup.

The officer who used vulgar language "interjected himself into the situation using language and tactics that were inappropriate, even inflammatory", according to the department's Facebook post. "Shut the f*** up and get out of the vehicle", Officer James Legg says in the video to Campbell. I judged her actions to be passive resistance and used very limited force to end a multiple minute encounter with the suspect. "I will come out for you".

"The vehicle was making a turn off Windward Parkway, swerved over into the officer's lane, nearly causing a collision", department spokesman Howard Miller said.

Los Blancos still have three games to play in the Spanish top flight this season, and the first is against Sevilla on Wednesday. Zidane will be hoping that his side can use these league matches to generate some momentum before the crunch match.

That's when Legg leaned in to point and scream at Campbell: "Hey!" As Campbell is being dragged from the auto, an officer can be heard screaming, "You're not in charge!" I remind you that I did not make the traffic stop, did not begin the use of force, did respond with emergency equipment, did properly analyze the situation, did render the vehicle safe, did get the suspects attention and out of the auto, did effectively get her detached from the seatbelt, and did get her handcuffed with limited force.

"Who are you talking to?" "Shut the f**k up and get out of the vehicle", Legg is heard telling the Campbell as two other officers try to remove her from the auto.

Suddenly, other two other cops arrive on the scene. "Once a detailed investigation is completed, I can assure that there will be a decisive and appropriate outcome".

The department has also asked the GBI to investigate in the interest of further transparency. "However, if we are going to be 100 percent transparent, that means that we also must be willing to share with you any major concerns that arise regarding employee performance and behavior". After being told that she would be arrested for not signing the ticket, she requested that a supervisor respond to the scene.

"Everybody does that when a cop gives you a ticket", she said.
