“No individual should be handcuffed and be beaten by the police.

Simona Tibu has been charged with assaulting a peace officer and obstruction following a traffic stop on August 3.

According to Alberta court documents, Tibu is facing two charges: assaulting a peace officer and resisting arrest (Section 129); and obstructing a peace officer.

She is scheduled to appear in court in Camrose on September 18.

Tibu was on her way to see patients in Edmonton that morning, when she was pulled over by an Alberta sheriff for speeding. When she opened it, he asked her to hand over her drivers license and insurance information.“I advised him I would do so if he stopped hitting my car.”Tibu also told him that if he didn’t, she would record him on her phone.“At that moment, he became very violent.

He took his hands through my window, hit my right hand, where I have bruises on it, smashed my cell phone out of my hands, and told me…

‘Get out of your car now.'”She says she listened to the sheriff, who handcuffed her.

With her arms behind her back, Tibu says the sheriff then began hitting her breasts.

Fearing for her life, she began to scream, hoping someone would hear her and help.

Tibu says that only made the sheriff even more aggressive.
