In May 2020, Tyler says she was driving around a curve on the road in rural Arkansas late at night when she lost control of her car and hit a tree. She says at first she was relieved to see the police, but her relief turned to fear when, disoriented and panicked, she began searching for her phone and car keys.

“I was then pulled out of the car from my left side, trampled to the ground, and put in handcuffs and shackles,” says Tyler, who was tased and arrested. The charges, which include one count each of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and obstructing governmental operations, and two counts of battery of a police officer in the second degree, were later dropped.

Tyler claims she was brutalized by the police. Her mother, Talisha, insists that the authorities treated Tyler the way they did that night because she is Black. “The people who are supposed to protect and serve were assaulting my child,” she says.

Talisha later obtained the police bodycam footage of the incident and posted it to social media, where the videos went viral. Tune in to Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, ‘“Traumatized By My Police Incident,’” to hear more about Tyler’s story.

And later, what does Civil Rights attorney Benjamin Taylor say police could have done better?
