SEE IT: Texas cops mistakenly pull over, arrest woman with 4 small children inside car

The officers in Forney were looking for a car with four suspects who waved a gun out the window. The officers quickly realized their mistake and then tried to calm down the four children who were 10 years old and younger.


Texas police mistakenly pulled over and arrested a woman, scaring her four children in the car including a 6-year-old boy who exited the vehicle with his hands up.

Dashboard footage from the officers' car in Forney, Tex., was released to TV station WFAA.

The officers were searching for a beige or tan Toyota with four black males after authorities were alerted a gun was pointed out of the window.

Police pulled over a burgundy red Nissan Maxima driven by Kametra Barbour's on Aug. 9 that was spotted in the same area as the other car, the station reported.

Barbour was immediately pulled out of the car and handcuffed with her four children inside.

"Yes sir, what is wrong? My kids. They are 6 and 8 and 10, 9. What are we doing?" she asked. "Sir, what is going on? Oh my God.You will terrify my children."

After his mother was pulled away, 6-year-old Ryan can be seen exiting the car and walking to the officers with his hands up.

Police can be heard on the tape recognizing the children were too young and did not match the description they had been given. They can also be seen trying to calm down the screaming children in the car and assured them no one will go to jail.

A Forney detective told the station the officers' actions were appropriate due to the seriousness of the call they were investigating. Barbour told the station she understood the officers made quick decisions, but is still bothered by what happened.
