Last Week, July 3, 2017, in Arlington, Texas Latasha Nelson documented an interaction between herself and Arlington Police Officer Chad Haning. According to local media and the Next Generation Action Network this incident escalated from an unfounded accusation of auto burglary.  Officers claimed that the teen “fit the description” and the mother pleaded with the officer to let her son go because he was not who they were looking for.

The video starts with an exchange and Haning holding the arms of Nelson’s child as he walks towards an Arlington Police Car. The conversation seems civil with the exception that Haning is now accusing Nelson of interfering with his investigation, after simply asking where they were taking her son.

The video then takes a complete 180 when Haning throwing another of Nelson’s son to the ground by his head, no simply again asking questions.

Nelson begins another video with an unidentified female Arlington Police Officer demanding her phone and the videos files it holds documenting the entire incident.
