Video shows altercation between inmate, officer at Ohio jail
DAYTON, Ohio – A security camera video shows an interaction between a female inmate and a male officer at an Ohio jail turning violent.
In the video obtained by the Dayton Daily News the officer can be seen talking to the woman and then reaching for her left arm.
When the woman pulls away, the officer grabs her by the left arm, spins her around and takes her down onto the floor.
Marsha Pate-Strickland has sued Montgomery County Jail in federal court over the 2015 incident, alleging a nurse contracted by the jail refused to send her to a hospital.
The lawsuit says Pate-Strickland was diagnosed with a neck fracture when she sought medical help after being released from the jail.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's office declined to comment to the paper.
