Police pursued a car being driven by a 14-year old girl, and then used pepper spray on her after she drove to her house and ran inside.
It all took place along Jose Street in the Molina neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.
"The girl, the little girl was pepper sprayed because she was resisting," said Lt. Brian Hill of the Corpus Christi Police Department.
Police said they showed up earlier in the day on Jose Street as part of an on-going dispute. It seems that the 14-year old girl had been having trouble with two other girls on the block.
When an argument broke out again Wednesday afternoon, an officer noticed the 14-year old driving away from the scene.
The officer tried to get her to pull over but instead, the girl continued to drive until she got to the 4500 block of Jose, where her home is located. She then ran inside.
The girl's dad was in the car with his daughter. He shot video of his daughter's arrest, and said police were too rough with his daughter, who he said has mental issues.
"I have him in there, pepper spraying my daughter, sitting on her chest on the side, saying she can't breathe, and he said 'I don't care,'" her father Rorey King said. "He said 'I don't care,' and continued to sit on her. Then, after he had her handcuffed, he told her to get up and then he said 'put your arm behind your back.' And he's sitting on her like this, how is she going to put it behind her back?"
King said he plans on taking the arrest video to a lawyer. In the meantime, he is working to get his daughter out of juvenile lockup, and to get his sport utility vehicle out of the impound lot.
