Simona Tibu, 40, was charged with assaulting a peace officer in 2013, but later told a court that she was the true victim ó saying the altercation left her fearing for her life.

The video was released after a lengthy legal battle.

Tibu was driving from Camrose to Edmonton in August 2013 when she was stopped by a sheriff for speeding.

The video, which has no sound, shows the officer speaking to Tibu through the driverís side window. He eventually opens the door and motions for Tibu to exit.

The encounter escalates quickly from there. Once Tibu stands up, the sheriff pulls a cellphone from her hand and the two struggle. The officer forces her arms behind her back before reaching inside his jacket for his handcuffs.

At some point, Tibu appears to pull away from the officer, who grabs her by the wrists and swings her out toward the highway before slamming her against the car twice. Tibu is seen yelling as the handcuffs are put on.

The video runs a total of 10 minutes before Tibu is forced to the ground and off camera. She was later taken away in an ambulance.
