The officer in question, Enoch Clark with the Beaumont, Calif., police, is awaiting trial on charges that he "blinded" Monique Hernandez on Feb. 21, 2012, the Banning-Beaumont Patch reported last month.
Hernandez said in a January complaint that she was cooperating with Officer Clark as he subjected her to field sobriety tests and a breathalyzer on the night in question.
Clark nevertheless allegedly handcuffed Hernandez and shoved her against his car while telling her to "stop resisting." Hernandez said she "never attempted to kick, head-butt, grab, or pull away from Clark, and she never attempted to flee."
"Without any legitimate justification, Clark shot his JPX pepper spray gun at Monique's head and eye area from less than ten inches away," the complaint states.
Her family members heard a loud "pop," saw a "red flash," and heard Hernandez cry out in pain. Another officer on the scene, Francisco Velasquez Jr., allegedly prevented them from going to help Hernandez, pulling out a baton to intimidate them and silence their protests.
The JPX gun shoots out pepper spray liquid at 405 mph and causes serious injury if shot from less than 5 feet away, especially when shot at a person's eyes, the complaint states.

"When the sergeant arrived, Monique was still in the patrol car, and Clark and Velasquez proceeded to relay the fabricated story to the sergeant while Monique remained helpless in the back seat of a patrol car," she continued.
Though Hernandez used to work full-time as a Wal-Mart supervisor, and was named employee of the year in 2011, she now requires full-time care and ongoing medical and psychological treatment, according to the complaint.
Our store was designed around the concept that everyone should be able to defend themselves without the fear of carrying a lethal weapon such as a gun. Our products are mostly Less-Lethal in nature and are designed so that the victim can escape from their attacker without causing lethal harm. Another big concern with most people is that they can actually be sued for defending themselves with a lethal weapon. Carrying and using a gun will not end at the time of use, but could put the Victim in a financial bind trying to defend themselves against the law for using lethal force. This can be very expensive and could lead to both mental and financial ruin.
Soon enough I hope that someone so sick of this crap and with a big chip starts offing these pieces of crap from a distance one a day, just head shots, one a day, over and over until they finally start to understand that we the people are absolutely fed up with this garbage. And I for one would not bat an eye at all something needs to be done. And since they feel its alright to harm, assault, murder innocent people it's about damn time "people" started fighting back an anonymous letter after the first few saying either change your ways or let the good times roll. Just getting so sick of the "GANG" in blue getting away with murder.
Hate to say it but maybe, just maybe its the civilians turn, to start taking out a-holes might just be the turning point when they realize it is really them against us because they pushed it this far and made it this way.
Hey A-Hole LEO's this is your creation and don't think for a second soon it isn't going to come to fruition with all the BS you guys pull, society is not your enemy but will be if you keep it up enough like minded people not cool with your actions all of you, good or bad are lumped the same till you change all P.O.S in my opinion and many others
Only "GANG" I'm afraid of "THE POLICE" most dangerous "GANG" of them all......
Sounds like someone needs a JPX enema.
Seriously.....why would you even carry that as LEO? What purpose does it serve? If you need JPX, you need S&W instead.
