NYPD Tasered A Pregnant Teenager On Video

Disturbing video shows pregnant teen struggling with cops

"Get off of me, get off of me!" The screams of a pregnant teen have launched investigation into the NYPD. According to Pix 11, the 17-year-old was tasered by the police in her Bronx home and it was caught on cellphone camera.

The incident, which occured last Friday, apparently began when two men were fighting in the hallway of Dailene Rosario's apartment. Police showed up for an unrelated case, and the fight brought them to the scene. According to the complaint filed, Rosario interfered with the officers. When they tried to handcuff her, the teen reportedly threw herself down, sat on her hands and said, "Yo, why are you cuffing me? I didn't do anything."

The cops tasered Rosario as onlookers screamed, "She's pregnant! She's pregnant!" Later, she described the incident to Pix 11: "It's like your whole side is on fire and you're being stabbed at the same time."

The NYPD is investigating the incident. Rosario is charged with resisting arrest, second degree harassment and disorderly conduct.
