Newschannel 20/Dashcam Video

CHICAGO--Newly released dashcam video shows a Chicago police officer slamming a robbery suspect to the ground after she exited the car with her hands up.

The video was released Friday as part of the Chicago Police Department's new effort to increase transparency and rebuild trust with the community.

This incident happened back in 2011.

Tiffani Jones is accused of driving a getaway car for her boyfriend after he robbed a McDonald's at gunpoint.

Police say she tried to run down an officer, who shot her twice.

Jones then continued to flee until the other officers caught up with her.

Two officers involved in her arrest have been stripped of their police powers, pending a new review.
