The video shows Colorado Springs officer Tyler Walker, 29 at the time, clearly shoving the handcuffed woman into a chair by hitting her in the stomach. He then grabs Acker out of her seat and slams her on to the hospital floor. Aside from having two teeth knocked out, she suffered “trauma to the face, head, teeth and jaw; migraine headaches, concussion, closed head injuries, memory and cognitive function problems, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder.”
Meanwhile, conflicting police reports state that Walker either “escorted her to the floor” or that he “rolled her … to the floor.”
The incident took place after officers received calls of a disturbance involving a gun and were sent to check out Acker’s apartment. They reportedly found no probable cause. But, according to police, the woman was “intoxicated and verbally uncooperative with police,” while her boyfriend, Tyrin Tanks, was wanted on an outstanding warrant, according to Walker’s report.
