The Birmingham Police Department now provides the world with the rest of the story that has gone untold in many online, social media and media accounts.

An eyewitness who posted the videos of the incident to Facebook said in comments beneath the post that the woman was asked to put on a mask by a store employee and refused, cursing out the employee after she was asked to leave. Alabama's stay-at-home order only recommends - not requires - residents to wear face coverings while out in public.

The woman now faces charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing, possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. He said the woman became upset when an employee told her to wear a face covering, which can prevent the potential transmission of the coronavirus to others.

Mauldin did not detail those threats, but in the video, a second woman can be seen yelling at the officer and saying he gave the woman a concussion.

An off-duty Alabama police officer was caught on camera body-slamming a woman in Walmart in an altercation that cops say began because she wasn't wearing a facemask.

Queen Elizabeth was scheduled to travel to South Africa in October, but the report indicates the trip is now "up in the air". Ever since she has been isolating at the Windsor Castle along with her husband Prince Philip and 22 royal staff members.

When she turns toward the nearby screaming woman, the officer grabs the handcuffed woman's left thigh and hurls her to the ground. Her name wasn't released. Mauldin said the officer tried to defuse the situation first, but was forced to detain her when she would not calm down.

Mauldin said the department hasn't issued any citations or made any arrests pertaining to the city's shelter-in-place ordinance or face covering ordinance stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mauldin said the woman was not injured and refused medical attention.

"A preliminary investigation consistent with the Birmingham Police Department reportable use of force protocols were immediately initiated and investigators of the Internal Affairs Division are conducting an investigation. We have made a valiant effort to gain compliance and cooperation, and we will continue to do so working with the citizens of Birmingham".
