EDMONTON -- A Camrose, Alta, dentist, who alleges an Alberta sheriff assaulted her during a routine traffic stop last year, has launched a formal plea to see charges laid against him.

Simona Tibu represented herself during a hearing in a Wetaskwin, Alta., court Jan. 30 to present her case to a judge regarding the alleged Aug. 3 assault she says began with a traffic stop.

Tibu said she was driving to her office in Edmonton from her Camrose home when she was pulled over for speeding.

She claims that when the sheriff approached, he violently hit the driver's side window of her car and that she refused to produce her documents if he continued to hit her vehicle.

When she told the officer she would begin filming him on her phone if he continued, "he became violent," she said.
