Watch a Dallas County Jailer Slam a DUI Suspect's Face into a Tile Floor

RhondaWellsDallasJail.jpg
For the record, the jailer in the above photo no longer works for Dallas County. Rachel Leigh Graham lost her job and pleaded guilty to official oppression for slamming her handcuffed charge into the tile floor of the Lew Sterrett jail. But that doesn't make the video, seen below in a clip from NBC 5, any less brutal.

In it, you'll see Rhonda Wells, the 47-year-old being booked in on a DUI charge, saunter up to the counter while Graham is looking through her purse. This angers Graham, who has twice instructed her charge to stay on the red line, and she slams Wells into the ground face-first. Graham's fellow jailers can be seen cringing while Graham casually resumes her search of the purse.

The impact knocked Wells unconscious, broke multiple teeth, and caused serious head and facial trauma, according to the lawsuit she filed against Graham.

This is nothing new at Dallas County jails. Luckily this time it was caught on tape.

Why are the other cops/jailers not helping Wells after she's assaulted? 

If you're a cop there and don't do anything to help, you're part of the problem!!

This is what I love about Texas.

If this were California or New York, the bull dike cop would have kept her job, received a medal, and the victim would have been charged with assaulting an officer.

Here in Texas, the cops at least get fired.

biznitch deserved what she got, better knocked out on the floor than knocked out behind the wheel of her car out on the road trying to murder a family of four.

they should put in softer floors like the soft floors they have at playgrounds these days. this way people can be restrained if needed and if they hit the floor they wont get hurt

Well I disagree, about we don't know how many times the harmless lady was told to stay behind the line,that footage we saw is all we need to know,and that was how that lady officer was abuseing her authority, that video was enough said!

This female cop should be fired on the spot and arrested. It is hard to get decent people to do any work in this country. Too many rats. But at least there are a few people doing good things. http://t.co/XCiKDZ8tJQ

Yea, a female cop would have felt her up both holes...  Don't go anywhere near trying to tell us there is a difference between jailer and 'officer'.  they all are subject to the famous, "power corrupts..."  and they all cover up their dirty laundry.  trash.

And none of the cops all around moved to help.  Even the one who was so disgusted she walked away.  2 legged scum.  they all committed a felony by failing to report a felony.


every one of them should get 60 days with no pay.

Jailers are just people who were too stupid to become cops.  This is the proof.

Another reason added to the white underwear cons list. If she was wearing black drahs, that upskirt wouldnt have exploded out of my screen like it was filmed in 3D.

That county jailer has some serious problems. It bothers me even more to know she was working in my hometown.

Anybody who says this officer is justified is an asshole. There is no justification for this behavior when someone's actions are non-life threatening.

I find it so funny when law enforcement I talk to are confused about why citizens don't respect them. It's so simple that we teach it to children: YOU HAVE TO EARN RESPECT. Restraint earns respects. Patience earns respects. Care earns respect. Service earns respect. Brutality does none of that. It's disgusting and unfortunately far too common. This woman should go to jail. THAT actually might earn some respect from me.

That pig needs to serve some time. And no she is not a cop. She answered an add on the paper and got a uniform. L

I don't want a hot head on the police force. Not doubt they have to put up with a lot of bs. But this officer didn't give the women any warning. I bet the other officer heard the women teeth break

A restrained, inebriated inmate who did something completely non-threatening, like the one in the video? Also...VIDEO. I think we all saw how the inmate "act" and can judge. I am judging. Fuck her shoes, she abused a defenseless human being.

One could argue that if she was intoxicated enough to be incapable of driving a motor vehicle, she was also incapable of following instruction. So basically, the jailer slammed an inhibited (handicapped) person into the ground face first. Double bad.

when i was there for my dwi in 2005 i saw a jailer smash a weak, drunk old mans face into the same floor. blood everywhere. but that's all i saw, i didn't know what happened to get him to that point.

This cop has anger issues. Do they perform psych analysis on these officers before giving them a badge and gun? Serious question.

@tenji23 80% of the time these people are neither intoxicated nor a danger to anyone.

@tenji23 She was in custody and a danger to no one, police are there to uphold the law not to assault citizens moron.

@Nandoboom So, why didn't her fellow scumbag officers arrest her? Because they are filthy slime and they do the same thing to other detainees.
