A California supermodel broke four bones in her face and lost some teeth last month after police slammed her head into the ground.
Megan Sheehan, a professional model, was arrested last month after becoming intoxicated at a St. Patrick’s Day party. Video shows her being booked into the Santa Rita jail, and she is clearly behaving in a belligerent manner. However, what happens next is purely disturbing.
The officer attending to Sheehan becomes enraged at the suspect’s lack of cooperation, so he face-plants her into the concrete floor. Because she was handcuffed, Sheehan was unable to break her fall. Knocked unconscious, she immediately began bleeding profusely from her face.
“I should have never gotten that drunk, but also there are ways to detain someone and not break their face,” Sheehan said, according to Infowars. “I don’t believe that they should have broken four bones in my face and knocked out some of my teeth.”
The police report claims that Sheehan was “violently punching” the cop before being “guided to the ground.” The video, however, shows that the incident was far more deranged than police would have you believe.
“They knew by throwing her to the ground without having her hands available to break the fall, that she was going to suffer serious head injuries,” Sheehan’s attorney, John Scott said. “I believe she had to be taught a lesson. In police jargon, she flunked the attitude test.”
Sheehan has since filed an excessive force lawsuit against BART and the Oakland Police Department. Do you think she has a good case? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
