Twenty-eight-year-old Dasyl Rios was in court for a hearing about her mental diagnosis. As Rios sat on the bench outside the courtroom, she was ordered to walk with Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Johnson. Her mother, Sylvia Rios, says she heard a loud noise and saw her daughter being dragged down the hallway by the shackles placed on her ankles.
Defense lawyer Bill Gelin filmed the incident above. According to the New York Daily News:
“I don’t think I’m ever going to get over this,” said Sylvia Rios, an assistant principal at Plantation High School.
Gelin was in the courthouse for another case and filmed the troubling scene with his cellphone. He provided the video to the Daily News.
