The driver, who was record­ing the in­ci­dent with her phone, told Moore she wasn’t do­ing any­thing.

“You’re vi­o­lat­ing a traf­fic vi­o­la­tion, so at this point you’re be­ing de­tained,” Moore said. “I’m go­ing to ask you to step out of the car or we’re go­ing to re­move you out of the car. … I’m try­ing to be nice.”

“But I don’t think I’ve done any­thing to be de­tained for,” the wo­man said.

The video shows Moore reach­ing into driver’s open win­dow gap as she rolls it up and screams, “Do not reach into my car! Stop, stop!”

Moore pulled out his ba­ton and hit the win­dow, shat­ter­ing glass on the wo­man. The driver screamed again and said, “OK, OK” as deputies de­tained her.While hand­cuffed in an OCSO ve­hi­cle, the wo­man asked Moore why he broke her win­dow.

The deputy said it was be­cause she had rolled the win­dow up on him.

“Be­cause I felt un­safe,” the wo­man said, as her face was bleed­ing. “You guys are killing peo­ple like me. Are you se­ri­ous?”

Moore blamed her for not get­ting out of the car.

“You did this to your­self,” he re­sponded.

The wo­man suf­fered mi­nor cuts to the face from bro­ken glass and was taken to a hospi­tal, Sher­iff John Mina said dur­ing a June 4 press con­fer­ence.

Mina, who called the in­ci­dent “trou­bling,” said he would open an in­quiry into the deputy’s be­hav­ior and re­view the case be­fore.

Moore in his re­port wrote that there was ev­i­dence to sup­port charges against the wo­man of bat­tery on a law en­force­ment of­fi­cer and re­sist­ing with­out vi­o­lence.

The Sher­iff’s Of­fice on Wed­nes­day said it had sent the case to Ayala’s of­fice last week “for a de­ter­mi­na­tion on charges.”
