Marlene Pinnock, the woman being shown beaten by a CHP officer on a driver’s cell phone video, is finally speaking out.
CBS2’s Art Barron reported Pinnock — a 51-year-old grandmother described as a homeless woman — has only been talking to her family and lawyers since the videotape appeared last month.
She is now speaking out to reporters. On Sunday she spoke to CBS News’ Carter Evans.
The CHP officer is shown punching Pinnock in the head, repeatedly, as she lay prone and motionless on the ground on July 1.
