NILES, Ohio (WITI) — Police are releasing dash camera video of a woman arrested at a Red Lobster for disorderly conduct.

The video shows 25-year-old Carleigh Dawson of Columbus screaming and kicking a window in the back of the police cruiser after the incident that happened on Saturday, March 21st.

Police said they received several calls about an intoxicated customer who was acting belligerent with an infant inside the restaurant.

According to a post on the Niles Police Department Facebook page, at one point, Dawson reportedly swung the baby carrier with her nine-month-old daughter inside, dropping it on the ground.

When Dawson tried to get into her car with the baby, both employees and other customers called 911 and also blocked her from getting into the car.

Dawson is heard in the video screaming “Where’s my daughter, call my husband.”

The baby was taken to an area hospital to be checked out. She was not injured.

Dawson faces a charge of disorderly conduct.

Police reports state that Dawson drank two Long Island Iced Teas at the restaurant.
