A young woman who has been caught in possession of a small amount of crystal meth during a police raid on a drug house is restrained by officers. She shouts at the officers as they drag her out to a waiting police van, where she panics, possibly as a result of her state of mind, and resists with force, while screaming, ''Mom! Mom!...''. Finally, police use pepper spray on herwhile four officers carry her out to a police van. Her screams can still be heard as the vehicle drives away.
