Video Shows Crazy Arrest of Mother Who Said She Called Cops After White Man Choked Son


Fort Worth police are currently investigating a viral video that appears to show a woman screaming and yelling as she was arrested by a police officer. The six minute encounter was posted on Facebook Wednesday, and has already been shared thousands of times.

In the video, you can see a woman telling a Fort Worth officer that her 7-year old son had just been “choked” by a white man because the man said the young boy threw paper on the street.


“Why don’t you teach your son not to litter?” the officer replied. Things quickly escalated. You can hear the woman screaming and yelling as the officer handcuffed her on the ground. Her daughter was also arrested.

Family members who spoke with WFAA identified the mother as 46-year-old Jacqueline Craig and the daughter as 19-year old Brea Hymond. They’ve both been booked on charges of resisting arrest.

“We are aware of the video that is circulating on social media. Internal Affairs is currently conducting an internal investigation,” The Fort Worth Police Department said in a post on social media.

“We can’t keep excusing this as the rogue actions of a bad apple … the bunch has been spoiled … we need to fix the barrel,” attorney S. Lee Merritt said on Twitter. He claims to represent the two women arrested. He said he is currently still at jail waiting for them to be released on bond. He also added, “The FWPD never took original report of assault on Jacquelin Craig’s son. After bond is posted completing this report will be our 1st step.”
