Then she decided to file a complaint, in her offense, for not slowing to pass an emergency vehicle.

When she filed a complaint for the first time on August 3, the case concluded by saying there was no policy violation during the traffic stop.

The lady was not okay with the decision, and then she filed a complaint for a second time on August 25; that complaint led to a seven-day suspension of the officer, James Reynolds.

The complaint took a different turn, and the oversight office created its portal and form to accept objections against Fort Worth officers.

When they started accepting the complaints, 125 were submitted within a week.
