A Chicago, IL woman is suing a Skokie police officer for allegedly throwing her violently in jail.

Cassandra Feuerstein, 47, said in a federal lawsuit against the Skokie Police Department that the March 10 incident required facial reconstructive surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate to “replace the bones that had been shattered,” the Chicago Tribune reports.

A portion of the alleged incident was captured on jail video cameras, which Feuerstein’s attorney, Torreya Hamilton, released Wednesday.

“The video speaks for itself,” Hamilton told the newspaper. “She does nothing to justify what this male police officer does.”
