Three more Colorado officers placed on administrative leave after violent arrest of 73-year-old woman

Three more Colorado police officers have been placed on administrative leave in connection with the violent arrest of a 73-year-old woman with dementia, according to the Loveland city manager’s office.

Karen Garner was arrested last June for walking out of a Walmart with $13.88 worth of items, according to a lawsuit filed Sunday. Police were called and the arrest left Garner with multiple injuries, including a broken humerus, a dislocated shoulder and a sprained wrist, according to the lawsuit.
The arresting officer, Austin Hopp, was placed on administrative leave. The other officer involved in the arrest, Daria Jalali, was originally reassigned.
On Wednesday, Justine Bruno with the Loveland City Manager’s Office told CNN that Jalali along with officers Tyler Blackett and Philip Metzler were placed on administrative leave. Metzler was Hopp and Jalali’s supervising officer at the time of Garner’s arrest
The four officers being placed on leave follows the release of video showing officers — identified as Hopp, Jalali and Blackett — laughing as they begin to watch the body camera footage of Garner’s arrest.
Footage from the video was shot in the Loveland Police Department’s booking area shortly after Garner’s arrest.
In the video, Hopp gives Jalali a fist bump when asked how the arrest went.
