Watch: Colorado cop brutally slams woman to the floor in hospital hallway, knocking out her teeth

Published

The Colorado Springs Police Department has released video from a 2013 incident where an officer slammed a woman to the ground in a hospital hallway smashing out several of her teeth.

According to KKTV, the altercation took place in 2013, but it took until July of 2014 before Internal Affairs opened an investigation.

In the video, Officer Tyler Walker can be seen picking up 18-year-old Alexis Acker and violently body-slamming her down onto the floor where she hits face first while her hands were behind her in handcuffs.

In his report on the incident, Walker claimed that Acker was preventing him from arresting her boyfriend, and that she was drunk and began kicking him at their home.

Walker’s police report stated  “I then explained to Ms. Acker it was very stupid for her to kick at police as she was now under arrest for assaulting an officer.”

Describing himself as 6’3″ tall and approximately 210 pounds — and noting Acker is only 5’4″ and 110 pounds, — Walker stated he was “able to easily physically control Ms. Acker out of the house,”  before taking her to Memorial Hospital where the altercation took place.

According to Acker’s attorney, “She has injuries that will be permanent. Not only the dental, the jaw. She has a head injury. I think she is still with her doctors trying to get to the bottom of what that is.”

According to KKTV, Walker is is the son of the former Deputy Chief of Police, Rod Walker.

A lawsuit is currently pending.

Speaking with "AM Joy" fill-in host Jonathan Capehart, The Beat DC editor Tiffany Cross shot former Trump associate Stever Cortes -- a regular on CNN -- down as a possible candidate.

"There are names that are out there," Capehart suggested. "[Meliania Trump spokesperson] Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley and Steve Cortes."

OK, Democrats — you’ve had your fun. You grew up being told that everybody could run for president, and then everybody did. Except that this mad anthill scramble of presidential candidates, which resembles a bunch of kindergarteners descending on not enough cookies, really hasn’t been fun so far. All you’ve managed to do is put the fear of God — or the fear of the other guy, more like — into the voters, provoking widespread PTSD flashbacks to November 2016.
