  • Gun pulled on U.S. family after daughter takes Barbie doll

The family says the officers used unnecessary force - they've filed a $10 million lawsuit against the city.

"I, like many others, am sick over what I have seen in the video depicting Phoenix police interacting with a family and young children", she said.

"It was completely inappropriate and clearly unprofessional", Gallego added.

According to reports, Ames and a pregnant Harper were pulled by Phoenix police officer Christopher Meyer near 36th and Roosevelt Street following a trip to the Dollar Store.

They drove to their babysitter's apartment when a police vehicle pulled in behind them and an officer approached their auto with his gun drawn, it says.

She's expediting the deadline for police-worn cameras to August and requested a community meeting Tuesday. But passersby recorded the encounter.

A second video of the incident shows Ames on the pavement outside his auto with the same officer, Meyer, on top of him and placing him in handcuffs. I made him spread his feet.' In the video, there is no indication that Ames is resisting or ignoring commands.

"When I tell you do something, you f-- do it!" Ames claims that not long after they pulled into the lot of the complex, an officer came over to their auto window, yelling and threatening to kill them.

Ames was then handcuffed, thrown against the vehicle and ordered to spread his legs before being kicked in the leg and punched in the back by a second officer, the claim stated. Then, the officer dragged him upright and punched him in the back, the claim said.

Since the it happened, the family's 4-year-old has been experiencing nightmares and wetting the bed out of distress, according to the filing.

The lawsuit alleges the law enforcement officials "dedicated battery, illegal imprisonment, groundless arrest, infliction of emotional damage, and violation of civil rights". The doll of discord was returned to the store. It said the incident occurred on May 27 and not May 29, and began when a store manager alerted authorities of alleged shoplifters.

According to their statements to police, an officer yelled for the vehicle to stop, and the parents heard the command, but Ames drove off anyway. "I assure you that this incident is not representative of the majority of Phoenix police officers who serve this city", Williams said.
