Muskogee police released body cam video of an officer using pepper spray on an 84-year-old woman.

Officers were looking for her son last week when it happened.

They said there are two more officers left to interview before the department completes its investigation. Then the police chief will decide where to go from there.

Officers were chasing the woman’s son when he ran into the house. They asked to him to come out and he refused.

They then went into the home and used a Taser on the suspect. The women then came out and police commanded her to turn around.

FOX23 counted about 40 seconds in the video between that command and when she was pepper sprayed.

“This is a very important issue. There is a lot of missing information out there. There is a lot of prejudgment out there and a lot of concern,” said Chief Rex Eskridge.

The investigation is ongoing.
