Charda Gregory

In a brutal and infuriating abuse of power, Warren, Michigan police officer Bernadette Najor, with the assistance of several male officers, hit and tied down a potential rape victim before cutting off her hair weave, reports Addicting Info.

Charda Gregory, 22, woke up disoriented in a seedy motel room, where she was arrested by police for trashing the room. The young mother, who is justifiably traumatized after the incident, has no idea how she got there or why police brutalized her.

7 Action News Investigator Heather Catallo has more:

Gregory says on November 13, she went to a party in Detroit, where she believes someone drugged her.

Paul Misukewicz is her lawyer:

“She had a couple of drinks, then woke up in a strange place.  Didn’t know how she got there, completely disoriented, said Paul Misukewicz, Gregory’s lawyer.

That strange place was the Suez Motel on 8 Mile in Warren, where Gregory got arrested for trashing a room.

By the time she was brought in to the jail lock-up on the top floor of the Warren Police Department, Gregory had been pepper sprayed, but she appears calm.

It’s clear in the video that Gregory can barely stand as she comes face to face with Officer Bernadette Najor.

“She took it upon herself to get the scissors.  And for whatever reason, decided that she was going to butcher my client,” said Misukewicz.

As Officer Najor pats Gregory down, the officer pushes Gregory against the wall twice.

Suddenly Najor starts going for Gregory’s hair.  The officers struggle with Gregory, dragging her over to a restraining chair to tie down her arms and legs.

Officer Najor starts yanking Gregory’s head from side to side, chopping out chunks of hair.  It takes 3 full minutes before Najor gives one final yank and removes what’s left of Gregory’s weave.

Gregory tells us in some places she now has bald spots because Najor ripped her real hair out by the roots.

“She’s a very horrible person,” said Gregory about Officer Najor.

“No words can describe how I feel about that right now.  I’d rather not say exactly how I feel about that, I’m just very upset,” said Yolanda Ford, Gregory’s mother.

Najor, who was initially suspended, has been fired from the police force. The male officers who can be seen in the video have faced no disciplinary action.
