Incident: Arrest of Cara Reaves
On 8/9/2014, Cara Reaves was arrested by members of the Orlando Police Department. Unfortunately, Ms. Reaves told local media she was treated unjustly by the arresting officers. Whenever Orlando Police Officers are forced to overcome any resistance by an arrestee, especially in situations where injury is evident or implied, a supervisor completes an investigation and documents their findings on a Response to Resistance form. The supervisor attempts to obtain statements from the individual whom force was used on, witnesses and involved officers. Video or photos are also obtained to assist in completing the report. All of which was done with Ms. Reaves’ incident.
Reaves was arrested and charges with Trespass After Warning, Disorderly Intoxication and Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer. To date, a formal complaint has not been filed with the Orlando Police Department by Ms. Reaves.
The video obtained by Orlando Police Department can be made available to those interested. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to obtain the DVD.
