Story is from Yonkers, N.Y., where a police officer reportedly picked up a woman and bodyslammed her to the ground last year, breaking her jaw and putting her in the hospital for four days, The AP reports. It happened during a medical call involving the woman's niece -- looks like the officer was trying to give the EMTs some space.
The woman originally faced a criminal charge, which she beat. She's filed an $11 million suit against the police, and the officer is facing criminal charges.

The FBI arrested Yonkers police officer Wayne Simoes on Friday, June 27, 2008, charging him with violating Marquez's civil rights when he used excessive force and put Marquez in the hospital for four days.
