Kelcey Perry was shocked when an Arlington police officer rushed at her and slammed her to the ground in a chaotic incident the Dallas area. The injured teen says that she is going to take legal action against the officer, while investigators try to figure out why he did what he did.

She says that the police arrived, and she was slammed on the ground violently, as is captured by a witnesses’ cell phone. She says that the police officer did not say anything to her, but instead grabbed her and threw her down onto the hard pavement. She says that the man then proceeded to pepper spray her in the face and reprimand her for fighting with her friends. She left the scene with bruises and cuts, which she photographed so that her attorney would have evidence of the attack.
