The 10-minute video caught by eyewitness, Brock Bryan has been viewed over a million times on Facebook. The incident occurred when 18-year-old, Bethany Renee Nava, refused to exit the Metro Red Line after an officer enforcing the passenger code of conduct, which prohibits passengers feet on seats, asked her to get off. As the officer motions her to stand up, he can be heard saying, "I already told you what to do and you didn't. You disobeyed me. You're getting off the train."
The incident escalates as the officer tries to manhandle Nava out of the train and she resists being removed. Nava shouts at the officer, "I paid to be on this train." Once removed and let go she says, "This is not f*****g fair that you took me off the train because I had my foot there because I was comfortable like that."
The officer replied, "It's the rules of the train." Meanwhile 22-year-old Selina Lechuga, who can be heard shouting, "Are you f*****g kidding me? You really have nothing to do?" Lechuga says.
The two women continue to argue with the officer on the platform.
Eventually, other officers arrived and Nava and Lechuga are both handcuffed and taken into custody.
According to KTLA Nava is due on court for February 15th and Lechuga is being placed on $20,000 bail for obstructing an officer.
Authorities said they would review the cellphone footage to see if reasonable force was used.
