Over a Dozen Cops Swarm, Arrest Tiny Girl For Sitting Incorrectly on the Subway

Free Thought Project – by Jack Burns

Los Angeles, CA — Dramatic footage has just been released showing 18-year-old Bethany Nava, a West Hollywood resident, getting arrested for having her foot on the subway seat in front of her. According to the Facebook live video, Nava was riding the Red Line Metrorail when the confrontation with police occurred.

An unnamed LAPD officer, a sergeant, had reportedly asked Nava to remove her foot from an adjoining seat but she didn’t immediately comply. “It doesn’t matter. You’re getting off the train right now. I already told you what to do but you disobeyed me,” he told her in a normal voice. He then ordered her to stand up and told her she would be getting off the train at the next stop. “I paid to be on the train, asshole!” Nava told the officer as he laid his hands on her and pushed her off the train.  

”I’m 18. He’s taking me off the train for having my foot on the fucking seat,” she told the person recording. The officer whose badge number is 5203, was then surrounded by concerned citizens who accused him of abusing his badge and being on a power trip.

”You’re a fucking scumbag,” said Selena Lechuga, a concerned citizen who came to Nara’s defense and calling into question the officer’s actions in forcing the teenager off the train. “You’re impeding my investigation. Back away,” he told Lechuga.

During the altercation, Nara attempted to flex her rights when the sergeant asked her for her ID. “I was on my way to the DMV. I have to meet my mother to get my ID. Cause I just turned 18. This is not fucking fair that you took me off the train because I had my foot there because I was comfortable like that. There is no law that tells me that I cannot sit that way because I PAID TO BE IN THERE!” Nara screamed. “It’s the rules of the train,” the officer stated.

“What’s the fucking rules of the train,” she asked. Both Nara and Lechuga asked the officer to provide the rules of the train for them to read. “I don’t have any fucking ID I was about to go to the DMV to get it…I should not be going to jail right now!” she exclaimed.

“I don’t have any form of ID. I don’t have any drugs. I don’t have anything that you can arrest me for! My foot was on a chair…what kind of fucking conflicts do you have that you need to take me off the train that I paid for,” she asked. “Nobody was trying to sit in the chair.”

Soon after, backup officers arrived. Instead of questioning the validity of the arrest, they promptly placed the two ladies in handcuffs and carted them off to jail.

According to CBS News LA, both women were cited for disorderly conduct on the train. However, that charge is now being called into question. One could argue the entire incident was started when the police officer escalated the conflict by demanding Nara forfeit her fare and leave the train. It was then and only then when tempers began to flare and choice words were used.

While the officer appeared to just be doing his job, how he handled it will likely be seen as professional by supporters of law enforcement, and abusive by freedom loving citizens. Perusing through YouTube one can find a myriad of videos where citizens claim to have been harassed while riding the Metro.

It’s unclear exactly how Nara was sitting which prompted the officer to remove her from the train, but de-escalation techniques could have been implemented. The entire incident may serve to illustrate just how easy it is to become a criminal in LA. Sitting on the seat incorrectly can now get you arrested.

    I guess there’s no crime in L.A. if police have time to harass young girls for no legitimate reason.

    It’s too bad the crowd didn’t stomp him to death. Power-tripping bullies who pick on little girls deserve nothing less.

  2. Mark Schumacher in LV says:

    The crowd should have handcuffed the cop, and make an arrest themselves. This needs to happen more than you think.

    • NC says:

      Yea and then the 10 policemen who showed up would have called for 10 more and then the media would have shown up and turned it into a terrorist incident. Welcome to America!

    • mary in ND says:

      I saw that moving train and thought…one good hard push… BAM!

  3. NC says:

    Hanaha!! “You’re impeding my investigation” he says.

    As if telling a person to take their foot off the seat is an “investigation”.

    What a joke. I remember the days when this was satire. Pathetic.

  4. mary in ND says:

    ‘The officer whose badge number is 5203, was then surrounded by concerned citizens who accused him of abusing his badge and being on a power trip’……….that will teach him, uh huh

    • NC says:

      Haha I know. Let’s all stand there and yell at the king’s men. That’ll stop them.

      “Oh stop it officer, you’re hurting her”.

      When the F$ck are people going to wake up?

  5. NC says:

    Wow! Ten cops for a woman putting her foot on a train. Holy shit! One cop can’t handle an 18 year old girl. He needs to call the entire department. Holy shit.

    This is what I’m talking about. These assholes will send all their men to one basket while someone else on the other side of town is robbing a bank. Remember that guys. That’s your strategy because they really are that stupid.

  6. A friend Indeed says:

    The one thing that struck me as odd in this video – every 18 year old has a cell phone. She said she was going to meet her mother. First thing any 18 year old going to meet their mother in this situation would do is – call their mother! She did not take out her cell phone to call her mom to tell her what was going on, to ask for help, or to say she wouldn’t be there to meet her. That’s odd. Don’t you think?

  7. Bob in Wisconsin says:

    The Saturday afternoon before Christmas in 1984, on a New York City subway car making its run downtown, two black teenagers approached Bernhard Goetz. One of the teens said to the slightly built blond man, “Give me five dollars.” Seconds later, Goetz fired five shots from his Smith & Wesson revolver and four young men were injured–one with a severed spinal cord. After the train came to a quick stop, Goetz jumped to the tracks below and disappeared into the darkness of the subway tunnel. City newspapers dubbed the gunman “the subway vigilante.”

    During the early 1980s, New York City experienced unprecedented rates of crime. Murders during the decade averaged almost 2,000 a year and, in the city’s increasingly dangerous subway system, thirty-eight crimes a day, on average, were reported. Citizens did not feel safe. It is not surprising, therefore, when the city’s newspapers ran stories on the December 22 shooting on the IRT express, the shooter was widely praised for his actions: “Finally,” many a New Yorker said, “someone has had the courage to stand up to these thugs…

    “Los Angeles, CA…”


    I mean, really, whoda thunk it?

    ”I’m 18. He’s taking me off the train for having my foot on the f%&king seat,” she told the person recording.”


    I mean seriously, is 18 like, a magic number or something, that’s supposed to give you a free pass from the pigs? On top of that, you used the F WORD REPEATEDLY. You have GOT to be terminally stupid, if you live in L.A., and don’t KNOW that L.A. pigs will shoot your stupid @ss for FAR less. You’re damn lucky you were in a crowded venue, or you could very well be cooling in the morgue right now… with a bullsh#t story for the rest of the sheeple about how the pig feared for his (miserable, worthless) life when you pulled a gun on him (it turned out to be a cell phone, but no matter, you’re still dead anyway).

    That’s how you live & die in L.A., moron.

    These people really DO exist, don’t they.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not validating what the scumbag pigs did in any way. I’m merely pointing out the type of brain-dead dummies they’re mostly dealing with these days.

    • Martist says:

      Agreed. They’re definitely BOTH on some kind of trip. Piggy has some degree of modicum owed to US and he needs to learn a volume of lessons, but she’s a scumbag for putting her feet on furniture after stepping in spit, gum, bodily fluids and dog shite and thinking the rest of us are supposed to be down with sitting in that. She must’ve grown up in a barn. Probably did, actually. Both are useless.

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        You’d have to be SERIOUSLY stoned (with a huge helping of terminal stupidity thrown in) to even THINK of talking to an L.A. pig that way. I know the pigs are bad everywhere now, but take my word for it, L.A. pigs work EXCEPTIONALLY hard at being total scumbags.

        What that retard did was nothing short of suicidal, when it comes to THOSE maggots.

    • Mary in ND says:

      The ‘cops’ are no different than any other gang…..deal with them as such…..back in the 80s the district I lived in ($hitcago) had rival gang members on the ‘police’ force….Latin kings, disciples

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        If you want my opinion, mary, L.A. pigs were the prototype for the rest of the country.

        Remember that they created the very first S.W.A.T. team.

  10. BuelahMan says:

    Another brat who refused to remove her feet from a seat so others could sit down.

    I have zero sympathy for a self-entitled trouble-maker.

    • Mary in ND says:

      She wasn’t preventing anyone from a seat…..if she had been I am sure she would have been executed………I hope you are enjoying your police state buelahman

    • Enemy of the State says:

      “I have zero sympathy for a self-entitled trouble-maker.”

      we will be sure to return the favor , when you feel entitled to a 16 OZ beer in public ( oh the shame) and the Pig thinks otherwise beats yer ass takes yer beer and throws you in jail for 30 days , as yer family is kicked out of their home , now that Mr. money maker of the home is a felon

      Have a nice day in your Police State soon to be Martial Law

    It’s a footlong marinara meatball sandwich.

    Once you get your order and pay for it.

    The coupon says you can smack the tiny girl with the sandwich b4 u leave.

  12. Katie says:

    I did hear the larger gal say, “this is racist,” and she appeared to be Hispanic, and the smaller gal looked to be of another ethnicity other than Caucasian.

    Nonetheless, this situation was way overblown by the cop!
