KNXV obtained a copy of the full police report and discovered major omissions and differences between the officer's account and the witness videos. The vehicle first stopped and a woman got out, then the auto stopped again which is when the officers made contact. They also threatened to shoot them.
Finally, Meyer never mentions cussing or violent threats.
"I assure you that this incident is not representative of the majority of Phoenix police officers who serve this city", Williams said.
The report does mention how the officer instructed the mother, Iesha Harper, to "set the child down in the shaded area".
"The first officer grabbed the mother and the baby around both of their necks, and tried to take the baby out of the mother's hand", the claim alleged.
Meyer wrote that he told Harper "to set the child down" and she "became loud, verbally abusive, and refused our commands".
Recently released video of Phoenix officers drawing their weapons on a family and threatening to shoot has led an internal police investigation and a $10 million lawsuit against the city and its police department.
"I promise, it doesn't open", she tells the officer in the video.
The claim filed by Ames and Harper allege that the officers committed battery, unlawful imprisonment (after the two were reportedly arrested and taken into custody), false arrest and other civil rights violations.
Meanwhile, Ames is seen being held against a squad vehicle while an officer berates him for "not complying". She had three outstanding misdemeanor warrants and was booked, police said.
The couple's attorney, former Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, added that the officers violated his clients' civil rights. "It was completely unjustified". Police said they were made aware of the video on June 11. Police say they pursued the family because they allegedly stole food and underwear from a dollar store.
Five-year-old boy dies from Ebola in Uganda - health official
The outbreak declared in August has recorded more than 2,000 Ebola cases in eastern DRC, two-thirds of them fatal. That outbreak, spanning 2013 to 2016, cut a deadly path through West Africa, killing more than 11 ,000 people.
"I am deeply sorry for what this family went through, and I apologize to our community", Gallego said on Twitter Saturday evening.
The officer prompts and threatens Harper to put her hands up, despite her own protest that she is carrying a child in her arms, and cannot do so.
In a statement, Phoenix Police said the incident began when an officer was advised by store employees of shoplifting, and he was directed to people getting into a auto.
The footage, from May 29, sparked outrage as it appears to show police officers acting irrationally and aggressively toward an African American couple and their two young children who pose them no threat. But Ames was given a traffic citation for driving on a suspended license.
According to 12 News, Dravon Ames and his fiancé Lesha Harper say city cops pointed guns at their heads while their 1-year-old and 4-year-old daughters watched.
Thompson said Phoenix PD got the video Tuesday.
Ames said there were no sirens or lights to indicate that they were being pulled over beforehand and the officer who was pointing a gun at them did not immediately identify himself as an officer.
Harper, 24, was pregnant, and another daughter was in the vehicle with them.
Soon after they left the store, Ames said the couple pulled into an apartment complex to drop their daughter off at a babysitter.
"He was totally compliant, submissive even still not enough to save him from the ferocious violence of the police department", Maupin said.
