“Dash-cam video shows woman’s arrest during diabetic episode”
“In the video, deputies yank Revina Garcia out of her car. She had just been in a car accident after having a severe diabetic attack and is completely limp.
A deputy shattered Garcia’s car window and pulled her out of the car. Garcia was then thrown on the street face down and handcuffed.
“In this case there was no resistance. We are looking at that very seriously,” Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said.
With Garcia’s face on the ground and her not moving at all, deputies walk away.
“What concerns me is there is no need to lay someone on the ground for that amount of time. There were other deputies around that could have assisted in at least sitting her up or having her placed in a cruiser,” said the sheriff.
Garcia was face down on the pavement for more than a minute, and the Sheriff says he’s going to look into just how hot it was that day and how hot that pavement could have been.”
