(AllHipHop News) In May of this year, a Phoenix family went viral after authorities pulled out a gun over a 4-year-old daughter who allegedly took a doll from the dollar store.
During the clip, you can hear police screaming “get your fucking hands up!” They proceed to pull their guns out on the family while inside their vehicle, threatening to “get the fuck out the car.”
Jay-Z has stepped in, as the social justice department of his Roc Nation family comes to the aid of the family: parents Dravon Ames and his pregnant fiancée Iesha Harper.
The shoplifting incident resulted in police officers screaming “I’m going to put a cap in your ass” and “You’re going to fucking get shot!"
The Blast reports Phoenix PD are currently investigating the misconduct allegations, but the family has since hired their own lawyers.
Together with well-respected attorney, Alex Spiro, they intend to file a $10 million lawsuit against the department.
Jay-Z’s Team ROC has not only offered legal support for the family but called for the termination of the officers who were pointing guns at the family in the incident.
