The Associated Press Staff. DENVER -- A Colorado police officer accused of dislocating the shoulder of a year-old woman with dementia while arresting her apparently knew he had injured her. He told fellow officers "ready for the pop?
Officer Austin Hopp made the comment while showing the other officers the part of the arrest that shows Karen Garner being held against the hood of a patrol car in Loveland, about 50 miles 80 kilometres north of Denver last year, her handcuffed left arm bent up behind her head. The body camera footage, which can be heard but not seen on the surveillance video, was also ly released by Garner's lawyer. The videos plus a lawsuit filed against Hopp, other officers and the city and investigations into the arrest came this month amid a national reckoning over the use of force by police against people -- including those with mental and physical health conditions.
The surveillance video captured in the Loveland police station shows two other officers, one male and female, watching the footage with Hopp as he makes the "pop" comment. The female officer, who helped during the arrest and says "I hate this. The video then shows her pull her hat over her eyes while another male officer says, "I love it. As the officers were watching the body camera video, Garner was in a holding cell a few feet away, handcuffed to a bench. The federal lawsuit filed on her behalf earlier this month said she received no medical care for about six hours after she was taken to jail.
Later in the surveillance video, Hopp and the other male officer fist bump at the part of the body camera footage where Hopp dismisses the concerns of a man passing by the arrest scene who stops to object to how Hopp treated what the man thought was . After watching that part of the body cam video a second time, the second officer who is recorded on the surveillance video reacts to the man who stopped at the arrest scene by saying: "What are you doing?
Get out of here. This is none of your business. His body camera footage shows Hopp catching up to her as she walks through a field along a road. She shrugs and turns away from him and he quickly grabs her arm and pushes her pound kilogram body to the ground. She looks confused and repeatedly says, "I am going home.
On the police station video, Hopp says he is a little worried that Garner is "like senile and stuff. Police put Hopp on leave after the lawsuit was filed and announced they would conduct an internal investigation. Soon after that, the district attorney's office announced the arrest of Garner would be investigated by a team of outside law enforcement agencies. The city of Loveland has also said it will conduct a review. Loveland police declined to comment on the new video footage from the police station, citing the criminal investigation being conducted at the district attorney's request.
LPD has faith in the due process that this investigation allows for," it said in a statement. Hopp could not be located for comment. The Loveland Fraternal Order of Police, the union representing city police officers, did not return an asking whether he had a lawyer who could speak for him. The lawyer representing Garner and her family, Sarah Schielke, said the latest video footage needed to be released to force the department to change. I won't be a part of that," she said. A sergeant who ed off on the paperwork the officers were filling out while they watched the body camera footage was also added as defendants in Garner's lawsuit as was the second male officer watching the footage.
