Honestly, I don't believe any of the audio or video will be released to the public (although, it would help answer people's questions) any time soon. This is due to the fact that the doctor is still facing charges, last I heard at least, that means that nothing could be released until after that has been dealt with. Even after that, the government has an abysmal record of releasing any footage due to operational concerns. The only way we'll know the outcome is to follow this very closely, as the footage will come out at trail, be it the Doctors or the Sheriffs.
I would like to preface the rest of my statement with this is all biased off possibilities and playing devils advocate. I do not present this as fact, nor should it be taken as such, as I am aware I will not make many friends with this.
Also, Prom, in regards to would a police officer ever need to do that to a woman. First I would like to say as bad as the photos look, from what I can see it really does look fairly superficial (cuts, scrapes and light bruising) I will however admit that these photos were more than likely taken fairly contemporaneously to the incident, therefore not much time for swelling to take place and only few pictures were provided. Due to the superficial injuries it would be likely that these type of injuries COULD be caused by the individual struggling or resisting attempts by the police officer to restrain them against the ground or vehicle with little to no force being applied by the officer. Second IF the female became aggressive once out of the vehicle and tried to kick, punch, bite, spit or any other use of illegal physical force, (especially with spitting and bitting, you never know what illnesses people could have) then a higher level of force COULD be justified, to prevent any permanent diseases or injuries to yourself.
Also I have been told that the photos of her would be admissible in court, so if the Sheriff is charged the prosecution would be able to rely on that.
Again I am NOT saying that's how any of it went down, this is just merely my thoughts on how things could have happened to lead to the results as they have. Moreover, this was just a way to play devils advocate to some of the questions raised here.
Finally, please don't hate me hahaha
