“Spending the night in jail over picking up your kid from school is unimaginable,” said Rita Guzman, the mother seen in the video.
Guzman was parked in a “no park” zone like other parents, because she says the school has parking issues. “There’s always an issue with parking and how to pick up our kids. You gotta get there in 30 minutes early just to be able to park in front of the school,” said Guzman.
She said a Miami-Dade Police officer approached her while she was parked in the “no park” zone.
According to the arrest report, when the officer asked Guzman to move her car she replied, “Why are you being nasty?”
“I didn’t have any intention not to move. I only wanted to know where to move. I wanted direction,” said Guzman.READ MORE: Americans Letting Gift Cards Go To Waste
The arrest report said after refusing to show the officer her driver’s license despite him repeatedly asking her to show it, the officer removed Guzman from her vehicle.
Guzman ended up spending the night in jail and then went to urgent care once she got out.
“It was documented that I was bruised up. They did x-rays of my wrists and came to the conclusion that they are sprained,” said Guzman.
Guzman’s attorney said the police report does not give the whole side of the story and he wants the officer fired from the force.
“If this is the way he behaves in an open school area where children and school mothers are, you should get him out of that department immediately because he is dangerous to everyone out there,” said Lonnie Richardson, Guzman’s attorney.
Guzman was charged with “resisting arrest without violence”.MORE NEWS: 4 Miami Beach Police Officers Relieved Of Duty Over Use Of Force Following Arrest
