THE BRONX - A Bronx mother now faces jail time on misdemeanor charges stemming from her son's 2012 arrest when she says he was a victim of police brutality.

Schuan Reed and her son, Jashawn Walker, were arrested on charges of resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct in January 2012. Her other son, Jateik Reed, had been arrested and she says he was a victim of police brutality during the arrest.

Jateik Reed was initially charged with robbery and drug possession, but those charges were later dropped. He says his brutal arrest was caught on camera.

Schuan Reed says the same day her son was being held at the 42nd Precinct, she and Walker came to ask police what was happening and both were arrested. She claims she wasn't aggressive, but police insist the two became violent and tried attacking officers.

The court case is still in its early stages, but she's vowing to move forward with a lawsuit against the NYPD when it's over.
