A Colorado cop is under investigation for the forceful arrest of a 73-year-old woman with dementia after she walked out of a store without paying for cheap items and even returned them when asked.
The woman was arrested for attempting to steal $13 worth of merchandise from Walmart last June.
Body camera footage shows that Officer Austin Hopp forced Karen Garner to the ground before Hopp and Officer Daria Jalali held her against a police car.
Garner — who weighs 80 pounds — suffered a fractured arm and dislocated shoulder, and was left with bruises and scrapes, according to a lawsuit she filed against the department. Garner has dementia and sensory aphasia, the lawsuit states.
Walmart employees called the cops to report that Garner tried to walk out of the store without paying for a T-shirt, a soda, a candy bar and wipes, according to the article.
