What would have been a traffic citation turned into several felony charges when a University of Central Florida student refused to roll her window down.
Officer Timothy Isaacs said he was forced to smash her car window because she was closing the window on his arm.
The student -- Victoria King, 26 – was arrested and later filed a police brutality complaint.
UCF police pulled King over for only having one working brake light 11:41 a.m. Sept 4 on North Gemini Boulevard.
King refused to roll her car window all the way down so the officer could have her sign the citation, according to the arrest report.
The officer asked King "multiple times to roll down the window," but she ignored the officer and rolled the window all the way up, the report said.
The officer told King "that her window would be broken" if she didn't roll it down, prompting King to bring it a quarter of the way down, the report said.
The officer reached into the 1996 silver Mercury car to open the door, so King rolled the window up.
"I forcefully pulled my arm back and broke the window due to the defendant's blatant disregard to all of the orders that were given to her and her attempt to close the window on my arm," the officer wrote in the report.
The officer pulled King from the car and arrested her on three felony charges — battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting officer with violence and resisting officer without violence.
She was booked into the Orange County Jail but has since been released. She couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.
