After girl, 4, takes doll from store, cops pull gun on parents

Phoenix police draw gun on couple after their daughter steals doll

Horne said the family was taken aback by officers approaching them at the apartment complex because police didn't turn on their lights or sirens that would have indicated they should stop.

The court doc also alleges that the officers physically harmed Ames when they punched him in the back of the head and they also dislocated their 1-year-old when she was yanked out of her mother's arms.

The bystander video went viral and apparently, it's caught the attention of Jay-Z, who is reportedly lending his legal services to the family.

"On June 11, 2019, we were provided video of an officer taking two individuals into custody while investigating a shoplifting incident in the area of 3200 East Roosevelt Street".

A $10 million legal claim was filed against the City of Phoenix that says police officers committed civil rights violations by pointing guns and profanely yelling commands at the father and pregnant mother of two young daughters because one of the children took a doll at a dollar store without paying for it.

Additionally, we're told Spiro's team plans to help the family with their civil lawsuit against the city of Phoenix.

Not surprisingly, both officers were not wearing body cams during the incident. Unbeknownst to the couple, their four-year-old child had taken a doll, valued at.99 cents from the store while the family was leaving. One officer said she had asked the couple for a ride. In Meyer's write-up of the incident, the officer said he followed Harper and Ames' vehicle into the parking lot of an apartment complex.

No one was charged with shoplifting because the property was returned, and store employees didn't want the case prosecuted, police said. The couple's 1-year-old daughter was also with them at the time.

Mike Huckabee Discusses Daughter Sarah Sanders’s Plans After White House Departure
In an interview, Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Michael John Gray said Sanders would likely be a top-tier candidate for her party's nomination if she runs.

The notice of claim filed Wednesday said Ames was injured by police who erroneously claimed he wasn't complying with commands.

Video of the encounter near 36th and Roosevelt streets show several Phoenix police officers, some with guns drawn, surrounding the vehicle of Ames, his pregnant fiancée, Iesha Harper, and their two young children. She refused to get her hands up and stated, 'I have my child in here, I am not putting my hands up.' She continued to refuse to put her hands in the air and continued to keep them down by the seat.

Harper, who was five months pregnant at the time, said she was terrified.

Both parents, who stress they were unaware their daughter had taken the doll, were detained but not arrested or taken to jail.

The family is asking for $2.5 million for each parent and each child, according to the notice of claim.

Phoenix police Chief Jeri Williams said an internal investigation is underway. "We don't know", Thompson said.

While the family's claim said the incident happened "on or about May 29", the police statement said it was May 27. She has also scheduled a public meeting with the police chief for the community to air its thoughts about the troubling footage of the police interaction.
