VIDEO: In Traffic Stop Chaos, NM Officer Fires at Van

Comments: 4  | Leave A Comment

At that point, backup arrived as the initial officer bashed out the minivan’s front passenger window with his nightstick and another officer shot at the vehicle as it drove off.

The mother and teenage son were arrested at a hotel after a brief chase. She has since been released and faces charges of child abuse, fleeing and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia for a pair of marijuana pipes found in the van.

It’s unclear whether the 14-year-old is in custody. He faces charges of battery of an officer. His name has not been released.

Farrell’s attorney Alan Maestas did not immediately return a phone call to The Associated Press.

New Mexico authorities say the involved officers are under investigation. The officers have not been identified.

On the video the initial officer could be heard telling Farrell she had been driving 71 mph in a 55 mph zone.

  1. Excessive? The kid who jumped out of the van is lucky his mother isn’t burying him right now. Told to turn off car, she didn’t she fled. Son shows aggressive behavior towards the officer.

  2. This is a case about excessive police force against a mother and her children and cops gone wild. Yes, she should not have driven off. The force was excessive in response to the original stop for simply speeding. Shooting at a vehicle loaded with children is not a reasonable first response.

    In a similar case in Florida a black female college student was assaulted, battered, and arrested for not rolling down her window “all the way” to receive her yellow copy of a traffic ticket for a bad tail light. Her window was smashed out by the cop also.

    Sign this petition if you agree there was, again, excessive force to not hand a ticket to a college student and instead assault her.

    Signing petitions such as this send our message that excessive force by police officers will not be tolerated in our society.
