The fight between a patrol car and a woman who was called to attention went viral, Police Disciplinary Control announced an investigation into the uniformed woman for the tufted hair.
Patrolmen arrived in the Ciudad Alegría neighborhood of Montenegro, Quindío, last Thursday to respond to a community call, for a woman and a man who were fighting, making a scandal, and that woman ended up attacking one of the police officers, then the two ended up in a row .
In front of several people, including crying children – presumably the woman’s children – the fight occurred.
Acquaintances of the aggressor also did not intervene to calm her down and remove her.
While the patrolmen who accompanied the police, asked for reinforcements that were slow to arrive, and did not touch the woman who had her partner by the hair. When one of the uniformed men tried to lift the woman, others told him that they were going to sue him.
The mechoneada lasted more than 10 minutes in the middle of public roads. The patrol car had the weapon at her waist but did not touch it. Witnesses indicated that he also grabbed the woman’s hair, “because she was telling him to let her go and nothing.”
Finally, to get her to release her, and given that no other compañeras arrived to be able to intervene, the patrol car hit her assailant several times, a foreigner who, according to the community, had already had problems with other neighbors.
He reduced her, managed to get her to release her and subdued her, in order to take her to the Montenegrin Police station for attacking a public servant. Charges for which she is being prosecuted.
However, hours later she was released but linked to the process.
In view of these facts, Internal Control of the Quindío Police “will open a preliminary investigation of the patrol car.”
