A couple weeks ago, I posted a story about a Fort Worth cop arresting the mom and sisters of a 7-year-old boy, who was accused by a neighbor of littering. The cop's actions were very questionable and sparked outrage by not only the community, but elected officials in Fort Worth. Well, now body cam footage of the incident has leaked!

Officer William Martin was captured on video arresting Jacqueline Craig, the mother of the boy. Jacqueline's daughters, Brea Hymond and a 15-year-old girl who was not identified, were also arrested. Jacqueline called the cops after her neighbor allegedly choked her son after claiming the boy littered in his yard. The neighbor admitted to grabbing the boy by the neck, but Martin felt that the allegation of "choking" was exaggerated, according to The Root. The Root also states that the officer has a "history of using excessive force." The incident became very well-publicized in Fort Worth.
