A deaf woman was handcuffed in front of her daughters after not being able to communicate with Las Vegas police.

Andrea "Dre" Hollingsworth spoke with Las Vegas Fox 5, where she shared the horrifying expereince.

“I don’t know, I’m being pulled over and he is interrogating me … I am black, I am deaf, George Floyd just happened,” Hollingsworth told Fox 5. “The police officer pulled my arm … and I was like, 'whoa, why?' I have never experienced anything like that in my life,” Hollingsworth added.

In the video, the officer can be seen telling Hollingsworth to sit on the floor as her daughters scream. The cop then handcuffs her. The officer later orders Hollingsworth’s daughters to interpret for their mother and “talk some sense into her."

The video of the incident is now sparking outrage in the deaf community.
