Pregnant Woman Runs Over Purse Thief
Audra West is a hairdresser from Texas who was on vacation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida when she was arrested and assaulted by police. West had a few too many drinks and was arrested for disorderly conduct. During her stay in the Broward Sheriff’s Jail in Pompano Beach, she was brutally beaten. West was held in jail for over ten hours before the assault, and during her incarceration, she asked one of the deputies on staff if she could have a tampon. Deputy Kristin Connelly laughed at her and told her no. Frustrated, West cursed under her breath at Connelly, so Connelly stood up, grabbed a pair of rubber gloves and began walking toward her future victim. As she walked over to assault West, Connelly’s coworker attempts to calm her down, but Connelly was apparently out for blood and went around him.She grabbed West by her hair, entirely unprovoked and began hitting her, and throwing her to the ground. West was then pulled into another room, off camera, and assaulted by multiple guards who joined in on the attack.
