Video shows cops using stun gun on pregnant teen

Video shows cops using stun gun on pregnant teen

After telling police they couldn't enter her apartment, Rosario claims an officer grabbed her arm and pulled her into a waiting collection of cops.

But according to court documents, Rosario yelled, "I don't want to talk to you!" at Police Officer Taralena Gerrato, and then pushed the officer into a door frame.

Cops were in the building responding to a report of somebody with asthma when they came upon a fight in the hallway between the girl's ex-boyfriend and another man, a police official said.

The wires from the taser were clearly visible on Rosario's body in the footage shot by one of her neighbors. Still, the NYPD is embracing them, purchasing thousands of new 50,000 volt X26s from Taser and instructing their officers to use them more often-last year the Times noted that restrictions on how many times an officer may repeatedly stun a person have been lifted.

The complaint says that when other officers tried to arrest Rosario, she "threw herself to the floor, flailed her arms, and sat on her hands, refusing to be handcuffed", as she yelled, "Yo, why are you cuffing me, I didn't do anything".

Rosario then informs officers that they are hurting her, and someone says into the camera several times, "She's pregnant".

The NYPD Patrol Guide advises officers not to use stun gun weapons on children, the elderly, or obviously pregnant females.


Rosario was arrested on charges of resisting arrest, harassment and disorderly conduct.

"I can tell you that from what I've seen, I really don't see any issue with using the stun gun", he said.

The New York Police Department has launched an internal investigation following last week's incident - all of which was caught on tape. She also incurred a bruise from when she fell to the ground.

In 2015, New York City spent $4.5 million on tasers for the NYPD amid a national outcry over police brutality in the wake of video-taped police killings of unarmed black people.

To make matters worse, the Daily News reports that Dailene had lost a child in September during childbirth.

The NYPD did not immediately respond to ATTN:'s request for comment.
