A MOTHER-OF-THREE is making an official complaint against the police after being locked up for 13 hours with a broken arm.
Police have already launched an investigation into why Rachael Magee, 33 - who was in agony - was made to wait hours for medical treatment when she was in custody at Huddersfield police head- quarters.
Mrs Magee, who says her elbow was injured when she was pushed to the floor by three police officers, was arrested on Friday during a domestic row at her former home at Scale Hill, Birkby.
She added: "I did resist arrest, but it does not take three strapping men. I am only a nine-stone woman.
"I was locked in that cell from 7pm until 8am in absolute agony.
"They just left me. I was screaming in pain.
"I kept pressing my buzzer, saying I need to go to hospital. I was told a doctor was coming soon.
"But I never saw one in there at all. A nurse came earlier on, but she didn't even move my arm or do anything.
"I couldn't sleep because of it. When my arm dropped it was agony.
"I am still going through the pain now."
Mrs Magee, who has a six-month-old baby and two other children, aged six and 12, was eventually taken to hospital by police in the morning.
She was suffering from a chipped elbow and returned to the station with a pot on.
Mrs Magee added: "The pain is unbelievable. I can't even look after my baby now, because I've got a pot on my arm."
No charges were brought against her following the incident at her former home.
The West Yorkshire Police professional standards department is carrying out the investi- gation.
A force spokesman said: "A 33-year-old woman was arrested and taken to Huddersfield police station and placed in custody.
"She received medical attention and was declared fit to be detained."
The spokesman added that during the woman's detention it was necessary to take her to hospital under guard.
She was treated and returned to the police headquarters.
The spokesman said the force was investigating the events before and during her detention.
