A Summit County woman is accusing Stow Police of brutality.

Chelsea Garrett, 23, said her trouble began on Nov. 5 when she began having periodic blackouts while driving.

"I know I don't drink, I know I don't do drugs, I was on my way to babysit four beautiful little girls," said Garrett.

After being involved in an accident in Akron where she bounced off a median wall and hit a van, Garrett left the scene and then nearly side-swiped a Stow police officer.

She told Fox 8, "I'm diabetic, I have a few other conditions, I took over-the-counter cold medicine, one of which was new and I believe is what caused the reaction that just made me in a delirious state."

Stow Police dash cam video shows that when the five-foot-two, 90 pound Garrett got out of her car, she was struck in the chest by a police officer.
