The officer asked Williams for ID, but she said she didn't have any. That's when she complained that Nichols was only hassling her because he was "a rookie."

He ordered her to put her hands behind her back, but claimed that she cocked her elbow as if she was going to strike him. The officer said he acted in self-defense, hitting Williams in the jaw with a force that he described as "lightly medium."

She spent eight days in a hospital, handcuffed to the bed, court records show. Read more:
