According to the notice: “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. He told her to put the baby on the ground, which she was unwilling to do because the baby could not walk, and the ground consisted of hot pavement… the first officer pulled the baby by the arm to get her away from the mother, which injured the arm, in a condition known as ‘dead arm.’ Island (the couple’s 1-year-old child) has been having nightmares and wetting her bed, which she has not done before this incident.” Ames said the violent and unnecessary encounter began after his young daughter mistakenly walked out of Family Dollar with a doll. Phoenix police told ABC15 that the officer who verbally and physically attacked Ames is on a “non-enforcement assignment.” The officer who pointed a gun at Harper and her young children inside the vehicle remains on patrol.
