BALTIMORE, MD -  More and more videos of what appear to be police using excessive force seem to be popping up on the Internet all the time.

Here's yet another.

In March, Kianga Mwamba, 36, was in her car and recording the arrest of a man on the street in Baltimore. Police officers told her she could record them, but she must park her car in order to do so.

Kianga's attorneys say despite her explanation to police that she was in the process of pulling over in order to keep recording them legally, she was snatched from her driver's seat and tasered twice.

In a statement, police officials said, "During the arrest language is used that is both offensive and unacceptable. The Baltimore Police Department expects and demands that officers treat every citizen with respect regardless of the situation."

Kianga was arrested and charged with using her car to hit an officer, but those charges have since been dropped.

Her attorney says it's all a bunch of nonsense, but that the cuts, bruises , sprain  and emotional scars his client endured, are real. Kianga, who happens to be the daughter of a Capitol police officer, says police tried to delete the video but she was able to recover it, and now she's suing.
