As per a US media report, Elayshia Boey, a 24-year-old pregnant woman, was 'face-planted' into a cruiser and pinned to the ground by a sheriff's deputy, 'with his knee planted in her back, crushing her, and her unborn child, beneath his full weight,' says a federal lawsuit. Furthermore, Deputy Jon Hayden, who threatened to use a Taser against Boey, is accused of taking her to jail instead of the hospital, even though she was bleeding from her head and complaining of pain. Notably, only after a jail nurse refused to admit Boey due to her injuries and being six months pregnant, the deputy took her to an emergency room. Attorney James Russell, who represents Boey with co-counsel Michael Smith, said Hayden approached the stop in "an aggressive fashion" that is not typical for a minor traffic offense.
It is pertinent to mention here that Boey and Jenkins (the other woman) were both charged with felony assault of a police officer, among other charges. They are scheduled for trial in November. Both have pleaded not guilty and been released on bond.
