“I wanted help,” McCabe said in a recent interview with KTVU. “We called for help. This was not the kind of help we wanted.”
According to KTVU, in their report, Fremont police described her as “combative,” “assaultive,” “hostile” and “uncooperative.” When she got to jail, she was listed as a “priority booking” inmate.
McCabe admits that she talked back to police when they showed up but says that was only because she didn’t want police there at all. She called for paramedics — not cops.
“Why am I in the back of a cop car when I called for help?” she remembers thinking.
