The incident happened when Honestie Hodges was leaving her Grand Rapids home for a store last Wednesday, according to WOOD-TV.

Body camera video out of MI shows the girl being put into a police vehicle, as she is heard screaming "no" over and over again.

"Listening to the 11-year-old's response makes my stomach turn, it makes me physically nauseous".

Although her mother was present at the scene, the cops proceeded to point a gun at 11-year-old Honestie Hodge, told her to raise her hands and walk backwards to the wall, patted her down, placed her in handcuffs and then threw her in the back of a police cruiser.

"It made me feel scared and it made me feel like I did something wrong", Honestie said.

The incident was captured on bodycam and has led the police department to launch an internal investigation.

Grand Rapids police officers were at the home looking for the girl's 40-year-old aunt, Carrie Manning.

GRPD said Manning is being charged with attempted murder, and the victim in the case has been treated and released from the hospital. The police then go on to arrest two other women at the residence, neither of them fitting the description of the White female suspect.

'I'm hesitant to open or go close to my indirect access in light of what happened'.

Excellent Rapids police confined the Honesti and two other ladies, including the young lady's mom, as they left the house. Police said the women weren't armed. "You're not going to jail or anything".

Rahinsky acknowledged that sometimes suspects try to hide weapons by giving them to children, but also said he didn't believe this was a situation where the child posed any danger.
