Woman Claims Daughter Was Brutalized By Police, Then Sheriff Releases Truth

A viral story has generated outrage at the police, but now the sheriff's department has released what actually happened.

Parkland, WA - A woman has posted photos to social media accusing the sheriff's department of brutality against her 15-year-old daughter, but now the department has released what really happened.

Mai Klein posted to social media on Friday morning saying that her daughter was "bruality attack" by Pierce County Sheriff's Department at around 1 a.m.

In her post, she said, "they dragged my baby girl and let there K9 mole on her back and leg after the police already had her in handcuffs and down."

"She blacked out twice and the officers shaked her to get her up to walk they told her she was not going to get any help that she had to heal herself she begged for help and they treated her like she was nothing. They never read her any rights and now we been in the hospital since 330 am police brutality on a 15 yr old girl with no weapons or ever in trouble I'm devastated as a mom," the post went on.

She included photos of her daughter's injuries.

The post quickly went viral, with thousands of shares.

Pierce County Sheriff's Department has responded with what actually happened.

According to the sheriff's department, a Washington State Patrol trooper saw a white Ford Windstar with no rear taillights driving on Pacific Ave. S. and 167th St.

The trooper attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver sped off and ran multiple stop signs.

Due to the danger that the fleeing suspect was causing to the public, the trooper discontinued the pursuit.

Another trooper then spotted the vehicle in the parking lot of the nearby Safeway grocery store.

The trooper attempted to stop the car, and the driver again took off, going approximately 50 MPH down a county road. The driver tried to make a turn, lost control of the vehicle, and crashed.

The female driver fled on foot while the two passengers remained in the vehicle to be taken into custody.

The trooper called for assistance from a Pierce County K9 unit. The deputy responded and made multiple loud announcements that the K9 would be released, and announced that if she came out then no harm would occur to her; she did not respond.

The K9 then tracked the driver 40 yards away and latched onto her leg until she showed her hands. The K9 was ordered to release its hold and the suspect was taken into custody.

After she was arrested, troopers were able to identify her and determine that she was 15 years old.

Both the driver and passengers were read their Constitutional Rights on scene. The driver admitted that she had heard the warning that the K9 would be released.

The driver was treated by medics on scene and taken to the hospital for her bite injury.

The part of Mai Klein's post which may actually be true is that her daughter "blacked out twice," because troopers say she was impaired.

Troopers obtained a search warrant for the driver's blood while she was at the hospital.

After the driver was medically treated and cleared for release, her family demanded that she be taken to a children's hospital for further treatment.

At the request of the family, troopers transported her to the second hospital for evaluation.

"The troopers noted that she was able to stand on both legs, make eye contact, and speak clearly prior to her family arriving at the hospital," the Sheriff's Department said.

The driver's sister posted a video of the driver at the officer claiming that the police beat her and were trying to take her to the juvenile detention facility without letting her be seen at a children's hospital or get a CAT scan.

"She can't even stay woke, and they're trying to make her go to this Remann Hall place," the sister said. "She got bit by a dog and beat up by popos."

It's not clear if the driver was impaired at the time the video was taken at 9:55 a.m.

"They beat her while she was still on the floor in handcuffs, and they laughed at her while they were beating her," the sister added. "All she did - all she was doing was driving a car underage."

She then tried to claim that it was a racial issue.

"She was with probably three other white girls and they didn't do nothing to them, but they got to go home with their parents," she said. "But my sister got attacked by a dog and beat by police. How was there three other females in the car but only my sister got beat and attacked by a dog?"

None of the other vehicle occupants are alleged to have been recklessly driving a vehicle while impaired and fleeing from police, and didn't run and hide from the police. Those passengers were transported to a hospital for evaluation and later released.

After the second hospital medically cleared the driver, her family demanded that she be taken to a third hospital.

Instead, the driver was booked into the juvenile detention facility for felony eluding, DUI, two counts of reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest. Troopers later learned that the suspect's vehicle was involved in a hit and run just prior to the first pursuit, and additional charges may be added.

This mama seems to think that raising a delinquent will result in her winning the law suit lottery. What is a 15 year old doing out at 1am let alone driving? Heaven help these ignorant people.

I am at my boiling point right now ........I am so angry......I am so sick of these mothers and relatives lying about our police officers just to cover up for her stupid drunk daughter, driving without a driver's license, no insurance, evading police, etc.. The mother had the gall to demand her daughter be taken to a "third" hospital!!! I guess she wanted to keep going until she (the mother) found a hospital that would agree with her assessment of how " badly hurt" her daughter was hurt by the police officers!! Of course there will be a lawsuit forthcoming....my God, what a racket! The police departments around the country needs to come up with a heavy fine and or jail time for lying about what really happens when confronted by the Police . When these attention seeking low lives post their lies online, the police officers get so many threats and intimidating calls. Something has got to be done about this. Our police officers put up with so much $hit everyday from low-lives like these people and they don't deserve this.

My first question is WTH you 15 year old daughter was out at 1am? Great parenting! NOT!

I'm pretty sure that this isn't some "STUPID drunk daughter." while the mothers account seems very ignorant and one sided, it doesn't help anyone's case to call a 15 year old stupid. All fifteen year-olds are, by no fault of their own, in that state.

Perhaps we can show a little compassion even for the ignorant. And it will go a long way.

I'm INCREDIBLY upset and angry with people claiming police racism then the body cam footage comes out and OOPS! From the Reverend Moultrie's rant on FB to Dawn Hilton-Williams viral video saying she was LYNCHED in Virginia. In both cases the body cam footage showed their accounts to be fiction but the damage was done. To these people that do this you are CONTRIBUTING to racism! Don't we have ENOUGH hatred and anti-police incidents? They have a dangerous enough job without people lying to gain sympathy or further an agenda. Here's a great quote from Booker T. Washington “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

15 years old, hmm... I remember when I was a civilian ride-a-long, we got a call around 1 AM of an accident on the interstate that ran through our city. When we arrived, there was a car in the grassy median, with 2 people sitting in the grass. The 3rd person was a 15 year old girl - folded like a sandwich - dead. They were returning from a "nightclub" and lost control of the car, hitting one of the restraining ropes that keep on -coming traffic from coming across the median. The car had one of those sun roofs, which was open. No seat belts were being used. When they hit, the 15 year old girl literally flew out through the sun roof and folded up on the ground. Her parents never knew she had left the house. The parents in above story are lucky and I hope they wake up to the fact of how very lucky they really are...their daughter is alive.

Always good to hear both sides of the story. One side normally exposes the blatant lies of the other.

I think calling her stupid is quite appropriate. She was a drunk, unlicensed 15 year old who fled from the police in a vehicle, then on foot and then refusing to come out after being warned that she will be bit by a K9. What other word applies to her. And her so called mother's attempt to make this racial is pathetic. The passengers, complied with the officers and were dealt with accordingly.

Looking at the photo of the wound, it does look like excessive force. Sometimes the use of a fur missile is excessive force, and, here, the bite looks bad enough to be considered as excessive force. I encourage readers of this thread to look at the bite. Not sure of her allegations of being beaten are true, but, if so, then that could also pose problems for the officers involved. We will have to see what the courts say.

Bugger, you dumbass, we will not find out what the court says. She is a juvenile. Jesus, your stupidity over the justice system shows no bounds.

If she sues the officers for excessive force, then we sure will hear what the courts say. Also, this is less likely, but if the DA brings assault charges against the K9 unit's handler, then we will also hear from a criminal court.

Neither will happen. She has lied. She was caught in a lie. And I'm sure your God, the body cam, will also prove her wrong. Then she will quietly go away. As you should. End of my interaction with you for the day.

I've been a K-9 handler in the past and know the training of both dog AND officer involved.If she hadn't run, hidden and not responded to the officers request to come out, the dog wouldn't have been released, and she would not have gotten bitten. I'm betting the other allegations are bullshit as well. Badly applied race card IMHO.

Hey! They were the ones that fought to make police officers wear body cams. Now the truth is shown and they still don't believe the truth. The truth be known. Looks like an agenda to me! How can anybody feel sorry for her?

The child ran, hid and refused to come out. At that point the officers probably had no idea It was a 15 year old and they certainly didn’t know if she’s was armed...what the hell were they suppose to do. K9 officers are there to protect the human officers.

Not sure why people are bringing up the type of bite as if dogs have varying degrees of applying force. A bit is a bite. Some will be mild some will be deep. The type of wound is immaterial.

Now, the fact that verbal commands were given is an entirely different matter. The k9 was brought in to track down the suspect. This isn’t like the case where a sovereign citizen had a k9 brought in him. That one was questionable. In this case, there is a pragmatic reason to have the k9 there. The girl was warned, she was apprehended, and she’s alive and will face some sort of punishment for her crimes (I hope).

Also, most civil lawsuits reach a settlement. Civil lawsuits are easier to award than giving punishments in criminal lawsuits. And I don’t think a DA who cares about winning cases will pick this up for criminal charges. Qualified immunity alone will have this one seeing a loss for prosecutors.

"bruality attack" is usually covered under the use of force continuum.

I remember seeing that story and knew right away it was all a bunch of lies. The 8 year term of #44 put a racial divide right down the middle of our country and nobody can make me believe any different.
