A woman in Ohio is filing a lawsuit against the Montgomery County Jail claiming excessive force was used against her.

Marsha Pate-Strickland is suing the Montgomery county jail for this video-tapped incident.

It happened back in 2015.

Pate-Strickland says it all began when she asked a corrections officer at the jail if she could exchange her juice for milk.

In the video-- you see the officer grabbed her and slammed her to the floor.

Pate-Strickland said she complained that her arm and shoulder were injured... But she refused medical attention.

Now she claims she has permanent and debilitating injuries.

Officials with the Montgomery County jail have not commented on the lawsuit.
