She approached the scene in order to be a witness and assist her son.
That’s when the cops started harassing her as well, threatening to arrest her for being outside.
“Ma’am, either wait inside or wait in the backseat of my car. I’m not going to ask you again,” said one of the officers, according to ABC Houston.
“It’s my >replied the mother.
“I’m not worried about it!” the officer sneered in response. He then tried to arrest the mother.
At this point the father came to the scene and asked the cops “What is the charge? Why are you arresting my wife?”
The cop responded by telling the husband that the mother was “interfering” in an investigation.
“Investigation of what? You are on our > the husband replied.
That’s when the police became violent with the family and began beating and arresting them, according to reports.
Officer Drummond, who appears to weigh about 400 lbs, can be seen on the video waddling over to the restrained son and kicking him repeatedly.
At one point the video shows the officer grabbing the mother’s arm and dragging her across the concrete like a rag doll, eventually throwing her to the side.
A small white dog belonging to the family then runs out of the house and begins sniffing around.
Footage appears to show Drummond kicking the dog as it walked away.
The son’s ribs were broken and the father and mother suffered severe injuries.
His ribs were fractured and he suffered cuts and swelling after his face was pounded.
According to the attorney suing on behalf of the family, other individuals have complained about Drummond.
“There have been no less than six individuals who have come forward to me since this incident and said they also had problems with officer Drummond,” said the attorney.
“I had several law abiding citizens. I checked their records. They had no crimes on their record whatsoever. “They have come to me and said they have run into Jimmy Drummond on traffic stops and he has been swearing, going berserk and crazy on them as well,” added the attorney.
Now, several months after the incident, Drummond has finally been indicted by a grand jury on a count of official oppression.
He will get only 1 year in jail if he is convicted, and will possibly have to pay $4000.
He is currently on paid leave, according to reports.
