The California Highway Patrol has agreed to a settlement of the recent case of a pregnant driver, Tamara Gaglione, 30, being hogtied by police after being stopped for talking on her cellphone. Gaglione will receive a $250,000 settlement.
The video below shows Gaglione weaving between lanes before being stopped. The officers claimed that she raised her arms in a menacing manner. However, the video shows Gaglione not responding to instructions to throw out her keys and put her hands on the van. Instead she just stares at the officers who have their guns drawn. One officer then kicks out her legs and pushing her to the ground. One officer appears to kick Gaglione while she is on the ground and before she was hogtied. Police told her lawyer initially that there was no video and her attorney says that he was only shown the video after he persisted in his demands.
She was charged with evading arrest and driving on a suspended license. Those charges were dismissed and Gaglione pleaded no contest to using a cellphone while driving.
Officer Daniel Hernandez says that he kneed the woman in an effort to distract her so that his partner, Officer Roberto Martinez, could handcuff her. The officers say that it was Gaglione who escalated the incident to violence by raising her arms in a menacing fashion . . . in front of officers with their guns drawn.
In watching the video below, I fail to see any menacing conduct at all. I do see a driver who is weaving into traffic rather than pull over immediately and then ignore the instructions of the officers. There is no apparent justification for taking down the woman and then kneeing her on the ground — let alone the hogtying. There is no indication that any officer has been disciplined for this conduct.

This woman had it coming but the cop had no right to slam her down to the ground and hogtie her. They can handcuff her and bring her in and that's about it. Cops that lose their cool because they're being tested of their patience should not be hired. What makes it more pathetic is that there's a total of 6 cops there for one person, and pregnant at that. The cop here clearly should be fired...

6 mans for 1 unarmed woman (pregnant), seriously? Vive les Etats Unis! !
looks like she was on drugs to me
Anyone who hates cops or someone like detective john mclane, just watch cop death videos, always brightens my day.....even hearing a cop dead on the news is music to my ears. Hahahahahaha I'm not a criminal but I pray every single bullet to a cop is accurate from this day on, lol. Hey john, I hope if you have a wife and she gets kicked in the stomach, (an old-fashioned police abortion)...idiot
This woman put herself into the position of being arrested with prejudice. I hate cops as much as the next guy, but when they tell me to pull over, etc, I do it simply because I am afraid of the power they have over me. This video proves that they won't hesitate to arrest, with violence, some person who they imagine is disrespecting their authority. This woman should be celebrating her lottery win, because she eventually had the last laugh on the pig who assaulted her.
It is taught in Police Academies that there are two types of people (1) Police (2) Criminals, therefore if you are not Police you MUST BE a Criminal.

LOL. She raised her arms in a "MENACING" fashion? When did that happen? She basically raised her arms in 2 fashions. 1. In a fashion of like "what's going on? I don't know what you want me to do." Kind of like a shrug of confusion. 2. In a fashion where she was letting the police no that she meant no harm by putting her arms in the air. Not all the way, but mid way. They were visibly up. How can this stuff happen continually when corruption is visibly present in the video?
I agree there are a lot of jerk cops out there, but this broad brought it on herself. The cops were giving clear loud instructions and she chose to disregard all of them. She got what she deserved. If a cop tells me to throw my keys out the window, guess what? I throw my keys out the window. If they tell me to put my hands on the vehicle, guess what? I put my hands on the vehicle.
IDK...i'm seeing a ton of over abuse of power by our government in general from the top down.....I remember when you would get pulled over and the officer would tell you why you were pulled over ....Now, what do they ask..."WHERE ARE YOU GOING"....."WHERE ARE YOU COMING FROM"......what the hell business is it of yours?
moron, there were other vehicles doing the same violations & for the idiots trained to kill 1st & on their power trip violating every which way, shit, you need anger mgmt & know that you will kill someone for no reason but to satisfy your ego & madness, you are one reason why people hate the police, but nothing i say will change your mind, glad she got something for her troubles, not enough from dealing with lowlifes with a badge.

It's morons like this lady that make day-to-day life so miserable on the streets. No respect, whatsoever, for the authority of the cops. She was CLEARLY ignoring them and continued driving, attempting to weave her way through the standstill traffic. With the presence of the police, now the entire area and all of the other drivers are inconvenienced because of this one, single a$$hole. For the life of me, I don't understand why these morons always get a settlement. She's lucky she didn't get more of an ass beating. She should have. Based on her name and her blank stare at the cops, one wonders if she is just another of the hoards of immigrants flooding our country. It appeared as though she didn't understand what the cops were saying to her. She certainly is unaware of the law, stating you PULL OVER NOW when a cop signals you. Should have gotten a little more beating if you ask me.
