Disturbing video taken from a body camera shows an Arizona Police officer illegally enter a woman’s home and arrest her while she is naked.
The video taken from Officer David Selvidge’s body camera shows Chandler Police officer Doug Rose illegally entering the home of Esmeralda Rossi, questioning her on an argument she had with her estranged husband then proceeding to handcuff her and lecture her for over an hour. “I felt helpless. I felt violated. And honestly, I felt molested,” said Esmeralda Rossi.
Police arrived at Rossi’s home and according to an exclusive interview with ABC15, Rossi had just got out of the shower so quickly put on a towel to answer the door. At one point Rossi told officer Rose to wait oat the door while she grabbed a cell phone because she began to feel uncomfortable. That’s when Rossi said she heard boots come running in from behind her telling her to stop or she’ll be arrested. The video then shows officer Rose grabbing Rossi and handcuffing the woman, the towel falling off from her body as she struggles to try and keep it on.
Police records indicate that investigators believed Rossi was trying to agitate Rose but after reviewing the incident, Chandler Police internal investigators determined Rose entered the home illegally and without probable cause. The investigation also determined that Rose didn’t document arresting or un-arresting the woman or the fact that she was naked. There was also no video from his body camera for the call, records show.
