The Igwe Firm to represent woman claiming unlawful arrest by Philadelphia policeAttorney Emeka Igwe from The Igwe Firm is representing a woman who intends to take legal action against the Philadelphia Police department following what she claims was an unlawful and violent arrest. The incident began when the 18-year-old woman was waiting in a parked car in the passenger seat for friends who were purchasing drinks at a local store. Law enforcement officials approached the car, claiming it was reported stolen.

Despite protests by the owner that the car was not stolen, but rather a recognized error in their system, police handcuffed the woman. A recorded video shows the officer grabbing the woman by the hair before knocking her to the ground. She is currently seeking medical attention for head and neck pain.
