Officers in Sante Fe, New Mexico pulled Revina Garcia out of her car, handcuffed her, and threw her on the hot pavement all because they suspected her of drunk driving. The problem? Garcia was not drunk at all; she was in diabetic shock and needed medical assistance.

Diabetic shock, or hypoglycemia, occurs when the body's supply of glucose gets so low that it impacts a person's brain function. According to the Mayo Clinic, people suffering from hypoglycemia can exhibit confusion, abnormal behavior, and sweating — not unlike someone who after too many alcoholic drinks. When blood sugar gets dangerously low, people suffering from hypoglycemia can go into a coma.

The video, available below, shows Garcia's car window being shattered before officers yanked her out of the vehicle and threw her to the ground in handcuffs. New Mexico's ABC News affiliate reported that 67-year-old Garcia, who is diabetic, had just gotten into a car accident before the incident transpired.

Officers said they asked Garcia to get out of the car and, when she didn't, they simply though felt she failed to comply with their request and even tried to drive away. Finally, Garcia was able to muster enough strength to tell them she was having a diabetic crisis.

"I was just lost, I was just lost," Garcia said. "I just didn't know how to open the door."

Luckily, paramedics arrived to the scene minutes after Garcia was dragged out of her car. They were able to treat her symptoms and stabilize her.

Sheriff Robert Garcia said that he is investigating the incident because the officers' behavior was not standard for someone who was not resisting arrest.

"What concerns me is there is no need to lay someone on the ground for that amount of time. There were other deputies around that could have assisted in at least sitting her up or having her placed in a cruiser," said the sheriff.
