Seattle PD Sued After Video Reveals Police Lie About Arrest

Seattle police officer Sonya Fry claimed that the arrest and later assault charge was due to the fact that Morales had cursed at her and punched her in the chest. “If it’s your testimony against the testimony of a police officer, you’re going to lose every time,” said Darryl Parker, Morales' lawyer.

Luckily for Morales video of her arrest appeared on Youtube, showing officer Sonya throwing Morales to the ground. The case against Morales was immediately dropped after the prosecution saw the video.
