“Traumatized By My Police Incident”

Tyler says she needs Dr. Phil’s guidance on getting her life back to what it was before her traumatic police incident. She says in May 2020, she lost control of her car and hit a tree. Tyler says when the police showed up, she was unable to process the accident, and instead of the police helping her, she was arrested, tased, and thrown into jail. Tyler’s mother, Talisha, says she posted the police camera footage on social media and her videos went viral. Talisha claims Tyler suffers from mental illness due to this incident and lives with her because she lives in fear and can’t leave the house. Attorney Benjamin Taylor weighs in to analyze this case.
