TEXAS — New bystander video shows the moment an Austin police officer punched a woman several times in the head as two officers restrained her on the ground.

Austin police said in an arrest affidavit that she refused to get up from the ground at an Austin shopping mall, in addition to scratching one of the officers.

According to the affidavit, 26-year-old Simone Nicole Griffith was seen camping and sleeping on the side of the Carousel Pediatrics-Springdale building in the area of 7112 Ed Bluestein Boulevard on October 30 at around 5:15pm.

Austin Police reports a criminal trespass notice was issued by a security guard for the complex, but Griffith still refused to leave.

Responding officers say Griffith refused to get up and was aggressively cursing “Shut the f### up, I ain’t doing nothing. I know the m###########g law b####!”.

When officers told Griffith she was under arrest, she said, “No I am not. I don’t have to get up for you. You are not the law b####,” police said.

When officers tried to place her in handcuffs, she pulled her hands away and hit an officer in the face, scratching him, according to police.

“[We] proceeded to tell [Griffith] not to resist but she kept fighting back,” the affidavit read.

At that moment, one of the officers can be seen punching Griffith at least five times in the head and upper body.

The affidavit claims officers “ultimately had to use force to apprehend her even though Nicole was already notified that she was under arrest.”

Police said the officer injured in the scuffle suffered a 1/2 inch bloody laceration to the left side of his cheek as well as kicking to his torso and hip area.

Griffith was charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.

This is not Griffith’s first run-in with the law, according to police. She’s been arrested several times in the past and has been charged with resisting arrest in another Texas city.

Griffith has since filed a lawsuit against the city of Austin, where her attorney Rebecca Webber claims Griffith is “profoundly mentally ill” — and was camping on the sidewalk of the strip mall because she did not have a safe or permanent place to live at the time.

A use of force investigation is underway.

VIDEO: Man dripping in sanitizer catches into flames after getting tased by police in New York

Shocking new video shows the moment a man who doused himself in sanitizer burst into flames after he was tased by police in New York.

Police say Jason Jones, 29, allegedly stormed into the Catskill Police Department on October 30 and an argument broke off with officers in the lobby.

During the confrontation, Jones doused himself with hand sanitizer and the disturbing video shows one of the officers pull out a stun gun and tase Jones, who immediately burst into flames. The chemical reaction caused by the electric wattage and the sanitizer caused Jones’ skin to catch on fire.

The footage then shows Catskill police officers running for cover, leaving Jones behind as he desperately tried putting out the flames engulfing his upper body and head.

Jason Jones died on December 15 after spending six weeks in a medically-induced coma at the Westchester Medical Center Trauma & Burn Center in Syracuse.

“Jason was unarmed, in the police station, and not threatening anyone when the police hit him with 50,000 volts of electrical current and he ignited,” said Kevin Luibrand, a lawyer representing the Jones family. “Instead of helping Jason, the police ran out the room, shut the door and let him burn.”

After inhaling the heat and the fire, Luibrand says it destroyed the lining of Jones’s lungs.

A law enforcement official with extensive experience training police on the use of force reportedly said officers are instructed to never use a Taser on an individual who may have been recently exposed to a flammable liquid, including hand sanitizer which contains alcohol.

He said officers also should have immediately shifted their actions to trying to assist Jones when he caught fire.

“Once the threat has been stopped, you don’t just say, ‘I’m going to let that person burn,’” the official said.

The office of New York Attorney General Letitia James is investigating his death.

Man destroys merchandise, tries setting Palm City 7-Eleven on fire

SAN DIEGO, CA — A man was arrested early Sunday after destroying merchandise inside a 7-Eleven in Palm City and trying to set the store on fire, authorities said.

Shortly before 11:45pm Saturday, San Diego police received a call of a potential arson in progress at the 7-Eleven on Palm Avenue near Hollister Street, according to police Sgt. Dave Yu.

Police said it all started when a man, a regular customer of the establishment, started harassing a female customer inside of the store while trying to buy a beer.

After an employee told the man to leave the premises, police said the suspect started harassing other customers. When the employee asked him to leave yet again, the man went on a violent rampage by starting several fires inside the store and destroying merchandise, according to police.

When officers arrived along with firefighters, they found the 7-Eleven filled with smoke and the suspect breaking items inside.

Authorities told the man to surrender, but he did not comply with their commands and was uncooperative, Yu said.

Officials then deployed a K9 that took the suspect down and officers moved in and made the arrest.

The man was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries and dog bites. His condition is unclear at this time.

The cost of the damage is believed to be in the thousands, according to the San Diego Police Department.
