UCF police body cameras caught the altercation between an officer and Victoria King, who was pulled over a year ago for a broken tail light on campus.

A jury found King guilty last week of battery and resisting an officer without violence.

King didn't have proof of registration for the car and when police tried to serve her a ticket, she refused to roll down the window, police said. The officer broke out the window in the altercation, police said.

King said she was having a miscarriage and needed to get to the health clinic. She filed a complaint, saying the officer used brutal and excessive force.
