KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police say they are investigating after videos on social media show officers kneeling on a pregnant woman during an arrest.
The video shows an officer kneeling on the back of the woman with her belly on the ground while handcuffing her during a confrontation Wednesday night.
Police Capt. David Jackson says the officers were arresting a man when the woman began grabbing and touching the officers.
He said the woman was arrested for hindering and interfering and was evaluated at a hospital before being released.
