Two Florida police officers are accused of forcing an 11-year-old girl to the ground at gunpoint after responding to a burglary call at her home. The child was watching television in bed when the officers let themselves into her family’s Groveland home with their weapons drawn after the burglary alarm was accidentally activated, reported WFTV-TV. She said one of the officers pushed her to the ground and held here there with his knee while the other officer pointed his gun at her. “I was very scared and didn’t know what to do,” she said.

The officers asked if she was the homeowner and then went to her father’s room down the hall. “Someone should get fired for doing something like this,” said the girl’s father, Jean Guirand. Groveland police launched an internal investigation after the TV station called seeking comment.

The two officers, James Festa and John Rigdon, are three-year veterans with previous disciplinary actions in their personnel files.
