VIDEO: Mother Uses Baby As Shield While Resisting Arrest

Breonna Bell was arrested on multiple warrants, as well as new charges of cruelty to children and obstructing.

Covington, GA – A woman wanted for violating her probation dropped her infant and lost some of her clothing while trying to evade arrest (video below).

The incident occurred on May 9, after a woman called 911 to ask for help getting her keys out of her locked vehicle, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Bodycam footage showed the Covington police officer as he spoke with 26-year-old Breonna Bell on the side of the road.

When the officer told the mother-of-two that she had violated probation and had “a couple warrants” out for her arrest, she immediately refused to cooperate with him, the video showed.

“I can’t do that,” she said, shaking her head.

Bell, who was carrying her 8-month-old son in her arm, abruptly turned away from the officer, and began walking towards the passenger side of a vehicle being driven by who she claimed was her aunt.

The driver was later identified as Bell’s friend, 28-year-old Jazmin Stephens, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Stay right here – hold on,” the officer said, but Bell pushed his hand away, the video showed.

He grabbed a hold of her right arm, and tried to convince her to allow Stephens to take her children with her.

Bell continued to pull away, and began fighting the officer’s attempt to keep her out of the vehicle, dropping her son on the ground in the process.

“You dropped my baby, you stupid [expletive]!” she screamed, before snatching the child up.

Police said that the little boy landed on his rear end, and that he did not appear to be injured, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“As I attempted to remove [Bell] from the car I made sure not to grab the arm holding the baby,” wrote one of the five officers who responded to the scene. “As she sat down in the car the baby fell from her arm due to her actions, resisting my verbal commands while attempting to get away from me.”

Bell tried to close the door, but the officer shoved it back open and ordered Stephens to “take the baby,” the video showed.

“Get out and give me the baby,” Stephens said.

“No! I’m not fixin’ to go to jail, b---h,” Bell replied. “I got a warrant.”

The officer continued to pull her from the car, assuring her that she would be going to jail.

“I’m not going nowhere,” she argued.

“At this point, the video shows Ms. Bell beginning to have a wardrobe malfunction with her pants,” the Covington Police Department (CPD) said in a press release on Tuesday. “As the officer continues to struggle to handcuff Ms. Bell, her pants fell to her feet.”

The officer’s bodycam was knocked to the ground during the altercation that ensued.

Cell phone footage recorded by a passerby showed Bell’s pants down around her ankles as she fought with the officer, who ultimately took her to the ground.

“I see the police just manhandling this lady and her pants down,” Alfonso Dennis told WGCL. “The police just grabbed her, and just slammed her, like a wrestling match or something.”

“Give me your hand!” he ordered, while Bell screamed incoherently.

Children wailed in the background as a woman advised the officer that Bell is “a female,” bodycam footage showed.

“Let her put her clothes on!” the female bystander repeatedly yelled during the brawl. “How you got her out here with no clothes on?”

The officer repeatedly ordered Bell to give him her hands, but she continued to scream and fight.

She also managed to provide a woman with a phone number to call one of her family members.

“Get off of me!” she yelled at the officer. “Y’all stupid b---hes! Get the f--k off of me you dumb-ss!”

The female bystander also informed the officers that they were “rude -ss mother---kers,” the video showed.

Once Bell was taken into custody, the officer retrieved his bodycam off the ground.

“Y’all did all this in front of these children,” the woman holding Bell’s infant told him.

Stephens blamed the officer for causing the altercation.

“Covington police have a reputation,” she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “To see it happen to someone you know, when you actually witness it firsthand, you’re like, ‘wow.’”

New Order National Human Rights Organization (NONHRO) board member Denise Williams said that Bell’s arrest is evidence of tension between police and the African-American community.

“Something needs to be done,” Williams said. “We desperately need a citizen review board.

NONHRO leader Gerald Rose said that the officers “clearly went overboard” during Bell’s arrest.

Bell was taken to the Newton County Jail on new charges of cruelty to children and obstructing an officer, WSB reported.

Covington Police Captain Ken Malcolm sad that the officer involved in the physical altercation handled the situation appropriately and did nothing wrong.

“He did not violate departmental policy,” Capt. Malcolm said.

"Well over 20 times, he asks for her to comply and stop resisting and stop fighting and allow him to handcuff her," the captain noted. "The officer gave lawful orders in this situation and Ms. Bell failed to comply with those lawful orders.”

Once again, “man on the street” gets out their phone and films a small portion of the encounter and posts on social media with their own narrative. She was the one with a warrant. He had no choice. It to arrest her.

Every day, all day. Act like an asshole then wonder why you get treated like an asshole. She should have her kids taken away for good, and the “bystanders with their cellphone coverage and commentary” should get locked up too. Animals! You couldn’t pay me enough to be a cop today- put your life in danger only to be shit on constantly by an entire generation of lawless scumbags.

You have to feel sorry for those kids, but the odds are strong that the cycle will continue with a mother like that.

I didn't even have to watch the video to know that that woman could have prevented the entire incident, but no, she had to resist, fight, yell, scream, put her baby at risk. Pathetic.

NONHRO says there's tension between the citizens and the police, and there's a need for a citizen review board. Of course there's tension, criminals have warrants and/ or break the law, and they don't want to go to jail. A review board needs to study why criminals don't want to obey the law.

Her pants were down around her ankles. They’ve been there twice already for her baby daddies. These people can’t even speak the king’s English.

The l*%# I had a mental disorder and she can do no wrong. Her friends have the same disorder. They should all be arrested and be put in safe environment without children
The mother should have the children taken away from her and given to the grandfather he seemed concerned about their welfare In fact the mother should have her tubes tied and never get her children back until she goes to school and gets s job

Even the resident trolls, @Burgers Allday , @Hi_estComnDenomn , and @tfort can't defend her actions. It certainly seems that one segment of our society doesn't believe the laws apply to them. And sadly, they actually have something called New Order National Human Rights Organization (NONHRO) (whatever the hell that is) defending her unlawful actions and trying to put the blame on the police. I'm actually in favor of finding some vacant landmass to put these people, far away from the rest of a civilized society, and let them create their own government and laws.

The NONHRO can kiss my ass. All this female had to do is comply and listen to the officer. She would have been able to hand her baby off to the other female. Then she could have taken care of her business, not traumatized her children and not exposed her unmentionables to the world.

Grandmoi

absolutely ridiculous behavior. what would ANY reasonable police officer do? She had a warrant for her arrest...is that the officer's fault? She and the bystanders had the opinion that the officer had no reason to arrest her ...why? because she did not wish to be arrested...In their world, the officer should have said, "Oh, OK..give us a call when you feel like it..see ya."

I hope they also towed her vehicle afterwords for obstructing the roadway afterwords since the keys were locked inside the car. Officer did nothing wrong. Stay Safe Brothers & Sisters.

So if a criminal has a baby, the cops shouldn't take said criminal into custody? or if the criminal loses their pants, said cops shouldn't take the criminal into custody? or the the criminal uses force to resist arrest, the cops shouldn't use force to take them into custody? Do I have that right?

"New Order National Human Rights Organization (NONHRO) board member Denise Williams said that Bell’s arrest is evidence of tension between police and the African-American community.

“Something needs to be done,” Williams said. “We desperately need a citizen review board"

Here's what needs to be done; EVERYONE regardless of your race or gender needs to obey lawful orders. She's trying to pull the race card and it's not working for her or this organization.

The tension that's being caused is clearly the fault of the black community at least in this video. Some mother, using her baby as a human shield.....

NONHRO, when did we need another human rights group? Obviously these people see a criminal being arrested and doing stupid on camera and yet the tension is between the African community and the police. NO!, it's criminals against police and stupid acting people such as your organization making false claims. NONHRO, you are part of the problem. So do us all a favor, learn some damn common sense.

she should have all of her kids taken away and never see them again. Her friend talking about how they just did all that in front of the kids. No you stupid little girl ( trying to keep this clean), the cop did not do this in front of the kids, SHE DID. Time to start taking responsibility for your own actions. SHE broke the law, SHE was on probation, SHE did not do what she needed to do for probation, SHE got the probation violation, SHE decided she was going to fight a cop. SHE is stupid. SHE got way less than she deserved. Now SHE got her another charge, or more. I would slap her dumb butt with resisting arrest and child endangerment. SHE needs to be under a jail. People like her NEVER learn and are NEVER a productive member of society

The usual rubbish from these poeple. She has a warrant and resists arrest and her frined says 'You doing this in front of her children?' - No Bitch , she is doing it in front of her children! Dictionaries in black schools must not have the word 'comply' in them.

Can somebody please explain the mentality of these people?? WTF? It never fails, a black acts like a fool, resists the cop, physically, yet their unanimous response is ALWAYS blame the cop... You see this almost exclusively in black people, why?? Is it brain cells missing or upbringing?

SHE caused her children to witness being arrested and traumatized them. My heart goes out to them. They see this stuff so young and it embeds in their brains and now all cops are bad and brutal. They don't have a prayer to grow up into NORMAL productive people in society.

I'm sick of watching officers, NOT using enough force! It's 2019, get used to being filmed, or having a body camera on. Graham V. Conner doesn't say use the least amount of force.

NFPD103

See the common problem, failure to comply and the suspect's use of force the resist officers. The acceptance of criminal behavior and the belief that the legal system doesn't apply to them. along with the total and complete belief that nothing they do to resist their lawful arrest is illegal and is always ways the police officers fault.

I lived in Covington for over 10 years, their police force is a good one. Very professional and helpful. If that land whale has warrants, like anyone else you have to go and take care of them. The rules and the law doesn't suspend because you were on your way to Ray-Ray & Pookie's house.

I’m so sick of this! What can’t they understand?!? The orders were plain and clear. Why do bystanders think it’s ok to yell at the leo’s instead of at the guilty person encouraging them to comply. Mind your own business and let them do their jobs you thugs!

"Bell’s arrest is evidence of tension between police and the African-American community."

No, there is tension between this community and almost any other community that's not AA. Its all about their behaviors and culture .
