Seattle Cop Who Punched Handcuffed Woman In The Face (Video) Won’t Face Charges
[su_right_ad]The Seattle police officer punched the drunk woman in the face while she was handcuffed sitting in the back of a police car.
Dashcam footage from inside the vehicle shows Adley Shepherd hitting Miyekko Durden-Bosley, 23, after she kicked the officer in the head while under arrest.
[su_r_sky_ad]The officer’s blow fractured the woman’s right eye, according to medical records.
But prosecutors said that Shepherd had ‘acted professionally’ and concluded they did not have enough evidence to prove his use of force wasn’t necessary…
On June 22, Officer Shepherd arrested an intoxicated Durden-Bosley while out on patrol.
She then protested, claiming she had not made any threats and had not been violent to her partner…
Frustrated, she is then heard saying ‘f*** you bitch’ during the footage before kicking the officer. The strike is not seen on camera.
Shepherd reacts by pushing her into the back of the patrol car and punching her in the eye.
After the kick, Shepherd is heard saying ‘my jaw is jacked’ but according to the Seattle Times, medical records showed there was no sign of injury.
A statement released on Friday by the King County Prosecutor’s office said: Officer Shepherd reacted instantaneously to the kick by the suspect, who was wearing boots, with one punch to the suspect’s head which caused a fracture of an orbital socket.
‘While Officer Shepherd may have had other options or alternatives, we have concluded that we would be unable to prove that Officer Shepherd’s use of force was criminal.’
