A Memphis family is demanding answers after a security guard allegedly used pepper spray and physical force on a pregnant woman while her apartment was on fire.

Camri Denton told WHBQ that a security guard at Bent Tree Apartments ordered her to leave the scene of the fire, but she said she had nowhere to go because it was her apartment that was burning.

She said that she began recording with her cell phone when the confrontation became heated.

“My name is on the lease. So, I don’t have to leave,” Denton can be heard on video telling the security guard. “I don’t have to leave. My name is on the lease.”

“Ma’am, you are causing a riot out here,” the guard replies. “You are causing people out here to act crazy.”

Denton said that the guard then “snatched me up by my wrist.”

“He almost broke it,” she recalled. “After I’m two to three months pregnant. And they slammed me against the wall. They put me in handcuffs, and the female pepper sprayed me.”

The family said that it was not the first time the security guard has caused problems, and they questioned whether he was a licensed security guard or if he was certified to carry a weapon.

The name of the security guard had not been released by the time of publication.

According to WHBQ, a spokesperson with Bent Tree Apartments said that Cobra Memphis provides security services to the complex. But Cobra Memphis denied having a contract for Bent Tree Apartments.

The widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings revealed to "The View" that President Donald Trump's attacks motivated his supporters to bombard their family with death threats.

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who's running for her late husband's seat in Maryland, said she hoped to build on his legacy as a champion of civil rights and fight back against Republican attempts to limit access to voting.

"We felt like this was our zero moment as a nation, that we have to make sure that we're all on the battlefield fighting for our future, and so while it does not look good in terms of President Trump and the Republicans," she said. "What they're doing to try to take us back 100 years in this country, the fact of the matter is that people are rising up all across the country. They are saying that we will not be oppressed, you will not take our democracy away from us. We have hordes of women who are running to take office, we have young people who are standing up and speaking out."

Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday appeared taken aback after getting fact checked in real time on Fox News.

During an interview with Fox News' Sandra Smith, Conway once again echoed President Donald Trump and complained about how unfair the impeachment process has been.

Conway then slammed Senate Democrats for wanting to call witnesses to testify at Trump's impeachment trial.

"Look at what happened in the House, the Republicans, the president was denied calling his own witnesses," Conway falsely claimed, as House Democrats did allow some witnesses who were requested by House Republicans to testify. "That is a complete disgrace!"

As President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial gets underway, many Republicans are defending the president vigorously. Conservative attorney George Conway, however, has been applauding Trump’s impeachment. And in an op-ed he co-wrote with political consultant Reed Galen for NBC News’ website, Conway describes Trump’s impeachment trial as an event that is “dominated” by “fear.”

“Fear was what Trump used to spin up the Republican base, using stereotypes, lies and hyperbole to dismantle decades of American political discourse,” Conway and Galen assert in their op-ed. “Fear of facing off against former Vice President Joe Biden was what led Trump to demand, as a price for vital military and security aid, that Ukraine help him smear Biden.”
