Earlier this month, 23-year-old Jazmine Headley and her one-year-old son found themselves at a Human Resources Administration office in Brooklyn, NY on what appeared to be a very busy day. When Headly arrived, there were no more open seats in the office. If you've ever been to a government office, you know there is good chance you'll be waiting a while and so, Headly took a seat on the floor with her baby to wait for her appointment.

That's when the trouble began.

Via Facebook

According to a Facebook post posted by the woman who captured the shocking video, a security guard approached Headly and told her that she would have to move, saying she was blocking the hallway. Headly argued with the guard, refusing to move and informing him that she was with her young son and she wasn't blocking anything. The argument got heated and eventually, police were called by the guard.

At least seven police officers responded and what followed was nothing short of a horror show.

When Headly still refused to move, the officers got aggressive and began attempting to remove her by force. That is where the video picks up and watching the video, one can see how violent the incident got.

Headly is seen screaming that the police are hurting her baby as one tries to pull the baby out of her arms in a terrifying game of tug of war between a mother and the police. The crowd in the office surrounds the scrum in the middle of the room and some begin to get hostile towards the officers. At one point, an officer even pulls her stun-device and points it at the surely terrified mother.

Eventually, the police separate the baby from his mother's arms and drag her off into another room.

Headly was charged with "resisting arrest, acting in a manner that puts a child at risk of injury, obstructing governmental administration, and criminal trespass."

The video is "under review" by the NYPD, who called it "troubling."

Warning: The video is intense and some viewers may be disturbed.
