A police officer tased a 12-year-old girl inside a Victoria’s Secret Wednesday afternoon at South County Center.
Police say the officer went to Victoria’s Secret looking for the teenager’s mom, who had warrants for her arrest. But it was the teen who got tased.
“This one goes in my chest. It was stuck in there so she had to keep on pulling trying to pull it out,” said Dejamon Baker, as she pointed to a small wound on her chest, and a matching wound on her stomach.
A police spokesman said that the dangerous 12-year old was ” physically getting involved and would not back away,” as officers were arresting the girls mother on outstanding warrants for “unresolved traffic tickets.”
The girl’s mother said that she plans to file a complaint against the policeman who tazed her daughter.
