A Georgia woman arrested on suspicion of DUI was brutally slammed face first into the concrete earlier this week, prompting an internal police investigation.

The cellphone video, uploaded by YouTube user “Nick James,” shows police removing 70-year-old Kathleen Allegrone from her car after witnesses reported seeing her hit another vehicle.

“An officer entered the vehicle, opened the door and pushed her to the ground,” an anonymous witness told Action News Jax.

While witnesses agreed the woman absolutely needed to be subdued by police, none felt she deserved what happened next.

The video then shows an irate Allegrone being taken to a police vehicle across the street by two officers. After being handcuffed, witnesses were shocked to see Glynn County officer Kevin Jones, according to the video description, slam the senior face-first into the pavement, reportedly breaking her nose.

“It really looked like a UFC takedown. Everyone just went silent,” the witness said. “The tape doesn’t do it justice either, the slam or the anguished cry afterwards.”

Witnesses looked on in astonishment as police attempted to bring a motionless Allegrone to her feet.

“You don’t have to be a 70-year-old woman to die from a brain injury or affected for life, and it’s just lucky she didn’t,” the witness added.

Following the violent slam, an officer interviewing witnesses can immediately be seen stepping in front of the video, attempting to block the user’s view.

“I’m just asking you not to do it,” the officer says repeatedly.

The officer, attempting to end the man’s video documentation, proceeds to use intimidation tactics, asking the man for his name before the video ends.

The Glynn County Police Department has been asked to open its own internal investigation by the local Board of County Commissioners. The offending officer has been suspended with pay for the duration of the investigation.

Whether or not Allegrone will press charges is unknown. She is free on bail, facing DUI and felony obstructing officers charges.

    Excessive force was used for sure! I'm pleased that this was captured in video! I'm not sure that the "Law Enforcement" folks will be brought to justice….I can only hope they will… This is appalling and atrocious! These guys should lose their jobs!

      They had my support until they appeared to throw her onto the ground.

      The DA that prosecutes her for drinking and driving should go after the cops for their assault.
      And the cop at the end harassing the guy recording it? He was an accessory in my humble opinion.

      Cops are there to protect and serve. Arresting a drunk driver was doing that, but it's up to the courts to punish her, not the guy on the beat. This police dept needs cleaned out from the top down. Police chiefs can be fired.

      ANY force for Statutory law arrests is too much. Statutory laws are those made based on the consensus of a pack of hyena politicians who create these laws to GET more votes and/or please a corporation which wants a monopoly or to protect the monopoly which it already has.

      The COPS should be forced to simply issue a CITATION, WITHOUT FORCE,if they feel any "law" has been broken. If for any reason the citation CANNOT be delivered ( in person or to the "offender's"address) then TOUGH luck for the City or State coffers

    agreed, entirely. The cop ‘asking’ (i.e intimidating )the film maker needs to move on with his choice of livelihood.

  3. The DA that prosecutes her for drinking and driving should go after the cops for their assault.
    nice post

    FIRST of ALL, being arrested for DUI, under NATURAL LAW is a PRE-EMPTIVE action, not with-standing ,Unconstitutional. She is being presumed guilty, before committing a violation of the Rights of Others. Acceptable by the SHEEP of this and other nations. Second of all,the Thug who violated her Natural rights, is getting a PAID HOLIDAY.

    What is wrong with you people who see any of this behaviour by these psychopathic clowns,in uniforms, as acceptable.

    We are so used to STATUTORY law evidenced by the fact that we can accept any part of being arrested for VICTIMLESS "crimes" ( drug use or possession,is another example). The favorite justification is he/she resisted!!!!

    Damn it people wake up……WE HAVE the ABSOLUTE to RESIST ALL STATUTORY law charges….they are UNCONSTITUTIONAL, and MORE Importantly, against Natural Rights., of which the Republic's Constituion is only a DERIVATIVE

      The sheep are not going to up even though there have been ever increasing warnings about the increasing powers of government controllers at all levels. Someone who witnessed the end result of out of control government wrote of this long ago.
      We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

      And this: "The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time."

    RESISTANCE to Tyrants is OBEDIENCE to your Natural rights

  6. WE HAVE the ABSOLUTE to RESIST ALL STATUTORY law charges. thanks

    first you go on some imperialist adventure your gov't says is necessary because of the threat of terrorism to your country (while the borders of said country are wide open) where you are given anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and whatever else it takes for you to stand the carnage you witness over 2 or 3 tours. then whilst there you are instructed to treat the locals like dirt thus additionally becoming desensitized to human beings. then you are mustered out and come home where you are recruited by various types of police authorities precisely because of your desensitization. then you hit the street on patrol where you are EXPECTED to treat us like DIRT. for the police state to function you need THESE KIND OF COPS to maintain order. none of this will end until you fools that vote for repubs or dems quit voting for dems or repubs. it's just that plain and simple!

    I know it's going to take a few bucks, but why aren't we recording every move a police officer makes while they're on duty? They should all be wearing something like Google Glass. Just wait. It'll happen. This idea can't be original, I'm sure there's a large percentage of people that would agree with it.

  9. Paul Mason says:

    Too often, the cops are the worst criminals, especially in the Deep South. Here in Stanislaus County, California, the Sheriff's Deputies are well-trained, decent, and intelligent, which is one big reason I am comfortable here.

    Thank you for keeping the real news coming. People need to know how their country is being destroyed from the inside.
