Body-camera video released by police shows an incident in which officers pepper-sprayed a 15-year-old girl after her bicycle allegedly hit a car in Hagerstown. Authorities say the girl had refused to cooperate with police trying to question her about the accident and find a parent to authorize her refusal to receive medical treatment from paramedics on the scene. The 15-year-old girl faces charges of disorderly conduct, second degree assault, possession of marijuana and failure to obey a traffic device. The incident has prompted disagreement about whether the officers acted properly.

Late Wednesday night, Hagerstown Police released the body-camera footage of the incident. In a press release, police say the video begins with footage from the first officer on the scene. The recording stops, they say, when the camera was disabled when it was kicked by the teen. Video resumes with body-camera footage from another officer who responded. Hagerstown Police Capt. Paul Kifer said the incident happened on Sunday. The white officer who arrested the mixed-race girl had to subdue her with chemical spray to get her into a cruiser for a ride to the police station, he said.

"The investigation had to be done," Kifer said. He said that while she appeared uninjured, police also wanted to make sure the girl wasn't hurt and find out who she was. "At that point, as would be even with an adult, if you're refusing to give us information on a traffic situation, at that point you can be arrested until we determine who you are," he said.

Kifer said investigators determined that the girl caused the accident. She's also charged with failure to obey a traffic device and marijuana possession. Kifer refused to publicly identify her, citing privacy concerns. Several officers involved in the girl's arrest remain on duty while the department investigates, Kifer said.





I think if she co-operated from the beginning, nothing would have happened to her. Instead she wanted to act like a spoiled, ghetto, little girl. She obviously wasn't taught correctly by her parents on how to act in front of the police ......

What does mixed race have to do with it? She acted out, got sprayed.

Lucky she didn't run into someone less understanding and decide some external parenting would do better.

A 15-year-old, foul-mouthed kid learning early to challenge and kick the police, and resist every step of the way...how nice--apparently, she also thought they shouldn't have stopped or touched her after she hit a car with her bike. Wrong on both counts.

The only thing wrong here (despite the usual "if I scream louder, it'll look worse" display...acted out for effect) is the ridiculous policy of protecting the identity of these snowflakes because of their ages. Their names and faces should be publicized, and let the world beware.

The little thug got what she deserved.

Attempting to flee the scene of an accident, disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice do tend to get you sprayed.

Just sayin'...

Unless you're one of the liberals' extra-special protected identity then you should be allowed to do whatever you want unabated.

Im surprised theres not any pending lawsuits for this one. Al sharpton usually fires up his helicopter by now and has his BLM team all over it.

For the most part the police acted fairly.

The pepper spray was unnecessary, though.

One of the cops said 'put your feet in or you're gonna get sprayed'.

She put her feet in and after the door was shut he sprayed her anyway.

Why???

I can't believe the driver made such a big deal about his car. The scratch or whatever it was was barely noticeable. It wasn't even a scratch, really. In any case, I would never call the cops for something so trivial.
