After video of rough arrest surfaced, second person says same officer treated her roughly

Posted: Updated:

Viral video of former NFL football player Desmond Marrow being tossed around like a rag doll, then choked by a Henry County police officer, is already hard to watch.

For Lauren Law, it’s especially painful.

She says the officer seen choking Marrow is the same officer who dragged her out of her car during a traffic stop. Back in 2016, Law was pulled over for a broken tail light. Officers asked for her ID, but she refused to give it up.

In video obtained by CBS46, you can hear her screaming as they smash her window.

Law says Officer D. Rose gets rough and pulls her out. She says this use of excessive force went unpunished. She says if Officer Rose would have been disciplined, this would have never happened to Marrow.

“I know the toll it has on your life. My heart goes out to Desmond,” she says. “I just can’t believe they still have this guy on the street.”

Rose is on administrative leave.

CBS46 has reached out to Henry County police asking if Officer Rose has any other violations against him. At the time, police said they were reviewing the officer’s actions, but it didn’t appear they violated any laws.
