A texas mother says she was mistakenly pulled over and handcuffed by police at gunpoint while her four children were in the car.
Police say they were responding to a report about a driver waving a gun out of a window — and thought the woman’s car was the one they were looking for.
Kametra Barbour’s car was loaded up with her small children.
She got out with her hands above her head-then was shackled in cuffs.
In less than a minute the officers knew they had the wrong car, then tried to de-escalate the situation.
The police department defends the traffic stop saying the officers responded appropriately to what they believed was a dangerous situation
