ENCINO (CBS2) — A video taken by the California Highway Patrol may be the first time a camera has captured all of the events leading up to a cardiac arrest following the use of a TASER® electronic control device.
On June 4, CHP officers stopped to check on the welfare of 50-year-old Angela Jones after finding her sitting in a parked vehicle on Haskell Avenue, near the Ventura (101) Freeway.
A camera mounted on the officers’ car captured the incident.
“How much have you had to drink tonight?” an officer asked the Studio City resident.
“Nothing,” Jones said.
“Nothing?” the officer responded. “What about medication or drugs?”
Officers questioned Jones for 15 minutes, suspecting she might be under the influence, and then asked to look through her purse.
“I just don’t feel like I want you to take my purse from me,” Jones said.
She held her purse tightly to her chest and ran back to her vehicle.
According to the arrest report, the CHP officer hit the trigger on his TASER® X-26 TM three times, sending three separate jolts into Jones’ chest.
“Do not move! Do not move! Stop moving!” the officer can be heard yelling.
The officers then pulled the driver out of the car, placed her on the sidewalk and realized she wasn’t breathing.
