I-Team: New video after driver crashed airport fences

In the video, police are seen questioning a woman with two kids, with the exchange quickly turning tense.

Weeks ago, police said Barraya Baker plowed through six fences at the Airport. It led to a delay in air traffic and investigators said Baker was having some sort of mental health crisis.

But, she has been indicted by Cuyahoga Co. Prosecutors and Baker’s first discussion with police turned testy.

An officer said, “You drove through some fences. You realize that?”

Baker answered, “Do you realize that people are trying to follow us and harm us? Do you want to help us?” Baker, then, started to walk forward, but the officer said, “You understand, you cannot leave. You’re being detained until we figure out what’s going on. So, you’re not going to be able to leave. You need to stop walking.”

Baker then said, “Do not touch me, sir.”

Soon, the situation erupted with two officers trying to handcuff Baker while she kept a grip on her children.

The video shows a struggle with officers saying, “Let go of the kids. Let go of the kids, or you will be tased!”

Earlier, Baker released a statement to the I-Team saying that on the day of the incident, she had a mental health episode, but she is committed to taking responsibility.

Records show she is due in county court next week to begin answering to charges.
