ABC15 has obtained video from the body camera of the back-up officer in the incident. The body camera was worn by Officer David Selvidge, who was cleared by Chandler Police of any wrongdoing. Portions of the camera footage can be seen in the video player above.
“I felt helpless. I felt violated. And honestly, I felt molested,” said Esmeralda Rossi.
Chandler Police launched an internal investigation after the incident. One of the officers involved retired in the middle of that investigation.
Police arrived at Rossi’s home after receiving a call about an argument between her and her estranged husband.
“I was in the shower,” Rossi said. “My daughter came to the shower and said there are two officers at the door. So I just grabbed a towel.”
When she answered the door, there were two Chandler Police officers. One of those officers was Doug Rose.
