Sandra Bland's Arrest Affidavit is Infuriating


Below are two documents from the Waller County District Attorney's office. The first is the July 10th arrest affidavit signed by the arresting officer, Trooper Brian Encinia. The second is a warning of constitutional rights signed by Sandra and by a magistrate.

In the affidavit Trooper Encinia says, 
"I had Bland exit the vehicle to further conduct a safe traffic investigation, Bland became combative and uncooperative. Numerous commands were given to Bland ordering her to exit the vehicle. Bland was removed from the car but became more combative. Bland was placed in handcuffs for officer safety. Bland began swinging her elbows at me and then kicked my right leg in the shin. I had a pain in my right leg and suffered small cuts on my right hand. Force was used to subdue Bland to the ground to which Bland continued to fight back. Bland was placed under arrest for Assault on Public Servant."

Dashcam video of Sandra Bland's arrest paints a different story of what happened on July 10th.  Trooper Encinia threatens Bland after ordering her to exit her vehicle. "I'm going to drag you out of here. Get out of the car! I will light you up, get out!" he shouted.
