Charges against a mother were dropped after video captured by a bystander showed officers pulling a 1-year-old baby from her arms at a Brooklyn benefits office, District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced Tuesday.
“Like everyone who watched the arrest of Jazmine Headley, I was horrified by the violence depicted in the video and immediately opened an investigation into this case,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “It is clear to me that this incident should have been handled differently.”
