A woman who called 911 this week to report that a neighbor had threatened her with a shotgun wound up being the one arrested — and violently manhandled, according to a video of the incident — for allegedly arguing with responding police officers. It’s resulted in a police investigation — as well as the officer being “relieved of his duties.”

The women ran down the street and called 911.

But Tumm, 50, says he doesn’t own a firearm. “I don’t believe in guns,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle, stating that he has been quarreling with Green for one year.

According to the incident report, an officer notated a “shotgun,” which Tumm says references an old golden BB gun in his backyard, which he showed to officers during a property search. The police tell Yahoo Lifestyle that no weapons were recovered from Tumm’s home and that he was not arrested or charged with a crime.

Alfred Gerald, a friend of Tumm’s who was present, stated that Tumm did not have a gun, according to the report. But he then retracted his story, siding with the women. When reached for comment by Yahoo Lifestyle, Gerald stood by his initial testimony.

When talking to police, Loving tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “I asked if I could go plug in my phone somewhere to check on my three children because I was scared and worried. One officer grabbed my arm and started shaking it.”

So yesterday me and my friend Adri Green were minding our business and this white male began to harass us as we walked up the street when we responded in a way he didn’t like he pulled a gun out in my face and told me he would shoot my burnt black ass face off my neck. I called the police and instead of them checking him and getting him together me and my friend gets interrogated like we are the ones with the gun then I ask if I can just go in the house to charge my phone.! Officer #7839 came 3rd car to the scene acting as if because he has a badge he’s oh so bad talking down upon us and acting like what we went through didn’t matter. My emotions were high I had a barrel in my face and I just wanted to talk to my kids. The officer was acting completely ignorant and hostile towards us so I felt pressure.! He said I needed to be Vaporacted or whatever which means sent to a mental hospital because I was in shock.! Officer A.Giraldo was completely wrong in every aspect in the situation. I clearly didnt get very loud until he lounged at me and became physical with me.! Anyone whose life was just threatened is going to be fuming idc what you say there is no calm when your adrenaline is going at a million miles per hour.! So instead of the man that pulled a gun out on me going to jail I wind up going to jail for disturbing the peace when my peace was disturbed just by walking down the street, I have to be harassed and my life threatened and for resisting arrest without violence .! 1 the officer was completely wrong in this situation 2 they never read me my rights 3 what’s the problem with me going to put my phone on the charger inside a house that isn’t even involved in the investigation 4 who said I can’t be emotionally stressed after all that happened this has to stop there is no way any of this should have happened but because of my skin tone for sure I’m the one being criminalized and treated like the one with the gun.! Then when she told him he could have approached me differently he said he should have tazed an unarmed civilian female that did absolutely nothing wrong.! Everyone please share share share #blacklivesmatter #benjamincrump #miamidadepolice #crookedcop #modernslavery #modernracism #miamidadecommissioner #homesteadpolicedepartment #floridacitypolicedepartment #mdpd #policebrutality

He and his partner are seen trying to handcuff Loving, but she kept her body rigid, yelling, “Do not touch me!” Giraldo wrapped his arms around Loving’s neck and wrestled her to the sidewalk, finally fitting her with handcuffs.

Loving was taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct/disturbing the peace

A second police report sent to Yahoo Lifestyle said Loving was “acting belligerent and would not obey commands,” hindering the investigating into Tumm. Loving, who was “upset, very irate, and uncooperative,” refused to calm down during questioning and was therefore arrested, it says.

On Thursday, police director Juan J. Perez issued a statement: “I find the actions depicted on the video deeply troubling and in no way reflective of our core values of integrity, respect, service, and fairness. This is why last week, upon becoming aware of the video posted on social media, an immediate inquiry was initiated which resulted in the involved officer being relieved of duty and of his role as a field training officer. An investigation into the entire incident is currently ongoing and I upon its conclusion, I will hold those that violated any of our policies and/or procedures accountable for their actions or lack thereof.”

Loving has an abrasion on her elbow and has reported injuries to her neck and back. “It hurt to talk for three days,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “The officer tried to intimate me when he should be trained in empathy. I got treated like trash.”
