The video says it all. In November of last year, a woman by the name of Charda Gregory was arrested and booked on the count of trashing a motel room in Warren, MI. Once in custody, a female police officer detained Gregory while cutting her weave off with scissors. Video of the incident went viral. The police officer had since been fired and all criminal charges against Gregory were dropped.
Editors Note: Gregory came forward with her account of the events, stating she barely remembered what happened and could have possibly been drugged at a party she attended earlier in the evening. It also should be noted that the police officer who cut Gregory’s hair has a track record of discipline problems within her respective department. One as recent as 2010 for being “untruthful.” Video
Gregory went on to recently reach a settlement of $75,000 with the City of Warren, MI in light of the incident.
The original survellaince video from the jail is below:
What are your thoughts on how the city handled the case? Was $75,000 enough to compensate for Gregory’s experience?
