Warren, Michigan - On Thursday, WXYZ dot com reported that Warren Police Officer Bernadette Najor has been fired from the department after it was learned that she brutally chopped the hair weaves of a woman in custody while other officers just watched. On November 13, Charda Gregory, 22, was arrested after she allegedly trashed a room at the Suez Motel on 8 Mile in Warren. Gregory says, she went to a party in Detroit and believed that she was drugged and then woke up at the hotel.
Police arrested Gregory for trashing the room and was sprayed with pepper gas. When she arrived at the booking area, Officer Najor can be seen shoving Gregory into a bench and then officers restrained her in a chair. In a video released by police, Officer Najor begins to chop Gregory's hair weaves with scissors and yanks the hair from the roots causing damage and bald spots.
The officers later told their supervisors what had happened, but didn't attempt to stop Najor from abusing Gregory. Officer Najor never filed a report of what had happened. She later claimed that Gregory wanted to commit suicide, so she cut her weaves. Investigators didn't believe Officer Najor who was suspended at first, but was later terminated as a result of an internal investigation.
Najor was previously disciplined for lying, according to WXYZ dot com.
