A Madison Township family is posting various videos they took this month of their mother being arrested.
The video posted on YouTube is very dramatic.
It shows what happened at about 12:30 p.m. on May 7 when 41-year-old Amy Paskins tried to close her door on sergeant Victor Boyd of the Madison Township police department.
“I said you’re not coming in and he reaches in and pulls me out,” she said. “And that’s exactly how that came about. I had no idea I was under arrest and he was like ‘quit resisting, quit resisting,’ and I was like, ‘I have no idea what was happening.'”
The video doesn’t show what was happening before she was pulled out, and the reasons police were there seem a bit convoluted.
Paskins said she had kicked her 20-year-old son Tyler out of the house for fighting with his older sister. He called the police on the mother for kicking him out, saying he needed to be given 30 days notice.
Police say he told them he was a victim of domestic violence. In this video, shot by family members later, police are questioning him about scratches on his face.
“You called 911 on a problem you were having with your mom and your sister,” an officer said. “You have marks on your face that I draw the conclusion that that happened during that altercation.”
In the video, he also tells police he didn’t want his mom arrested, even though he’s the one who called 911.
A captain with the police department says there is an internal investigation, but that Paskins was being arrested at the time.
“I’m being arrested (on charges of) domestic violence, assault, and obstruction of official business,” she said.
The daughter that was fighting with the son was also arrested. She hurt her wrist in the process, and said that happened from the handcuffs.
That’s the story of what happened at a home in Madison Township nearly 2 weeks ago.
All of it is now on YouTube.
