City police officers arrested a woman around 10:45 a.m. Thursday for failing to provide identification after she was stopped near the intersection of 24th and San Antonio. According to witnesses, she was just jay walking. When police asked her to stop, she didn't because she didn't hear them. She was wearing headphones.
“I was sitting at the Starbucks at 24th and San Antonio,” the student, Chris Quintero, a witness, told the Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas-Austin. “Then I hear a cop shout at an innocent girl jogging through West Campus with her headphones on.”
“She repeatedly pleaded with them, saying that she was just exercising and to let her go,” Quintero said. Quintero is heard in the video saying, “I saw you,” after the woman calls across the street, saying, “I was doing nothing wrong. I was crossing the street.”
Take a look..... do you think the police over-reacted or they were just doing their job?
