Cop who smashed 18-year-old woman's face on ground remains on regular duty

Colorado Springs police officer Tyler Walker said 18-year-old Alexis Acker was being “physically combative” and that she'd “kicked him in the groin area.” As a result, he had no other option other than to violently body-slam the handcuffed 100-pound teenager face down on a hard floor, knocking her teeth out. A police report stated that officer that Walker “escorted Ms. Acker to the floor.” Another report said officer Walker “rolled her out of the chair to the floor.”

Take a look at the video and see what being rolled to the floor by officer Walker looks like.

Acker was charged with five offenses, including two felony assaults on a police officer. In a plea bargain, she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of a police officer and felony menacing, receiving a deferred sentence on the felony, says Cindy Hyatt, her criminal attorney.

Because Walker injured himself while body slamming the teen, he was advised of his rights as the victim by CSPD. The department refuses to say whether or not Walker faced any discipline for his actions. He remains on regular duty.
