PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A Panhandle woman says she was unnecessarily arrested while shopping at a Walmart after Thanksgiving dinner.
An Escambia County sheriff's deputy said Antonia Angelena Bennett was fighting over a cellphone and told her to leave.
When she refused, he wrestled her to the ground and arrested her.
But 27-year-old Bennett says she didn't raise her voice until a deputy took the phone, threatened to Taser her if she didn't let go of the cart with her baby, hit her arm, threw her to the ground, put a knee in her back and handcuffed her.
The Pensacola News Journal reports Bennett said her baby was left alone as she was escorted away.
A sheriff's spokesman said it appears the deputies acted within policy but they will review store videotape.
