Video shows an Humble ISD police officer throw a Humble High School student to the ground and hold her down. Community activist Ashton Woods says the 16-year-old girl’s name is Essence Prince. Prince got into a fight with another student on Friday. This is how the officer broke it up.
Prince’s mom is furious, says her daughter couldn’t breathe with the officer’s forearm and elbow on her throat and he hurt her neck. Mom also says police questioned Essence without consent and initially denied her medical attention but finally called an EMT to check on her.
We reached out to Humble ISD and are still waiting to hear back.
Prince is charged with felony assault of a public servant.
The girl’s mother Ebony Dawson is on the Factor along with activist Ashton P. Woods.
