A shocking video has surfaced showing two Southern California police officers wrestling a woman who was 8-months pregnant to the ground.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the January 26, 2015 incident in Barstow, California was recorded on a police body camera. The Barstow Police Department was reportedly called to an elementary school parking lot during an argument between two women. Charlena Michelle Cooks’ daughter is a second-grader at the school.

In the video, police can be seen handcuffing Cooks and bringing her to the ground on her stomach. She was charged with resisting arrest, but a judge later dismissed the charge. Bartow police have defended the woman’s arrest.
