FRIENDSWOOD, TX – Throw in an allegation of police brutality, a screaming teen in handcuffs, put it on YouTube, and what do you get? A lot of people talking! The video that’s caused quite a stir hit YouTube was shot in Friendswood last week.

Long story short, Susan Coyle and her 16-year-old daughter, Kaylee, are saying a Friendswood officer was ‘unnecessarily rough’ with the teen. The police tell us the 16-year-old was taken into custody for “interfering with the duties of a public servant and resisting arrest.”

All of this started when Kaylee’s mom says a cop on patrol saw her car blocking the street on Kingsbury lane.

Friendswood P.D. says the mom didn’t have a license or insurance, so the officer started to write her a ticket. Police say the 16-year-old started yelling and even kicked the officer, although mom says Kaylee was only asking questions and it went downhill from there.

The video may go viral, but will it go anywhere else?

Friendswood Police are not disciplining the officer, although mom says she`s preparing a complaint. Mom says Kaylee’s pretty shaken and “bruised up.”

Maybe, someone will just end up with a bruised ego.
