    Thomas says Jones was trying to take her cell phone after she recorded an incident involving two other students and some Sapulpa police officers.

    Thomas says Jones took her phone and forced her to open it, so he could access her videos.

    Thomas’ aunt says the teen is suffering swelling and soft tissue damage to her arm.
