The officer repeatedly tries to get Morton to put his hands behind his back, but the man refuses and asks the officer to explain why he is being arrested.

& # 39; You are arrested for speeding, but now you are arrested for resisting the arrest, & # 39; the officer tells Morton.

Morton informs the officer that that is not what he originally told him, but the officer ignores him and tells him to get down and point a Taser to the man.

The officer also asks for Morton's identification, which seems to confuse him. A camerawoman – identified as Morton's fiancé, Porsha Shields – mentions that the officer deliberately shouts various instructions in an attempt to & # 39; mess with Morton & # 39 ;.

& # 39; You don't have to do all of that, & # 39; you hear Shields scream as the video ends.

A longer one video shared on Shields & # 39; Facebook indicates that the officer persuaded Morton after he noticed that he and another driver were both speeding. The officer can be heard telling Morton that he has repeatedly tried to handcuff him, but Morton asks again why he is being held. & # 39;

Reportedly, Shields told the officers that she was pregnant and added that the choking officer became more aggressive with her after she shared that information. She was also hit against the vehicle while her four-year-old son watched with horror.

& # 39; I really felt that I should never have told him that I was pregnant because it seemed like he was becoming more aggressive & # 39 ;, Shielfs told local journalists. & # 39; And what hurts most is knowing that my four-year-old son saw me screaming, crying, and being attacked, because this event will forever affect us psychologically. & # 39;
