The officer then contacted the woman and tried to arrest her, the release states, but the woman resisted the arrest.
Police say that's when a struggle ensued, forcing the officer to deploy his department issued taser at the woman. Lt Steve Dorris of Baytown police said the officer was patrolling an apartment complex and attempted to arrest the 45-year-old woman, whom the officer had previously dealt with, because he knew she had outstanding warrants.
The officer's name has not been released, but Baytown police said he is an 11-year veteran of the department.
During a video of the attack, the woman can be heard saying "I'm pregnant", according to KHOU-TV, a Houston area station that reviewed the footage. Dorris has said that in addition to this bystander video, there is likely also video from the officer's bodycam. "Our hearts go out to the family of the deceased".
