An Occupy Wall Street protester who a representative says was beaten into a seizure, is facing up to seven years in prison due to charges she assaulted a New York City police officer in March 2012. The officer behind the assault charges says that Cecily McMillan elbowed him in the face, while McMillan's spokesperson says she threw her hands in the air in shock after the officer grabbed one of her breasts. McMillan states she has no memory of the incident due to a severe beating by officers over the incident, but claims excessive use of force was used and resulted in her hospitalization. RT's Lindsay France speaks with Lauren Wilfong, the press representative for "Justice for Cecily," about the incident in question and the pending felony charges against McMillan.
