A Hunt County Sheriff’s deputy is currently being investigated after Child Protective Services arrived to take a woman’s 18-month old son into custody. Deanna Robinson, an Iraq war veteran from Texas, was 38 weeks pregnant and claims she was hit at least three times in her back at her parents’ home — and she has the video to prove it.
In a video posted online earlier last month, Robinson can be heard screaming and swearing as the deputies and child protection officials took custody of her 18-month-old, Landry, over a domestic violence investigation.
I stepped in front of my son and put my hands up and began screaming, ‘No, you’re not touching my kid,'” Robinson said at a news conference at her attorney’s office in Greenville. “I was handcuffed almost immediately and shoved into a corner by two giant men. I wouldn’t have had an opportunity to assault anyone. There’s nothing to warrant what they did to me.
The video is graphic and contains explicit language, but it also reveals an officer struggling with Robinson before letting a punch fly. The video then cuts off after the first blow is thrown, but Robinson claims she was punched several more times while handcuffed.
Robinson was charged with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer. As a result, she was arrested and spent six days in jail. After her release, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Levi.
Although the incident was traumatic, Robinson is just grateful her newborn is healthy. She said:
We’re just thankful that he’s healthy. It certainly could have turned out differently.
