Whether the officer is using unnecessary force is a question for the jury. Regardless, the officer does not have to allow you to speak to the chief. You may have to do that when you are not detained.

Either you’re there with her permission or you’re not. If you’re there with her permission, you won’t get into trouble. If you’re there without her permission or against her wishes, you could get into trouble. End of story.
