I’m looking for a quick answer,” she said.
“Yes, yes, I can’t tell them which one! I can only tell them that you just deleted the offending one.”
The officer, who asked not to be named, said the complainant was “shocked” by the footage.
“I’ve seen this happen to other people,” he said. “I didn’t expect to see the video.
“I was startled by it, that’s all.”
Mr Palmer could get in trouble for “improper use of the force”, a police policy that carries a fine of up to $15,000 and a criminal conviction.
The complainant, whose identity is not known to the ABC, said she was “angry and very mad” that her mobile phone footage had been deleted.
“I’m actually very, very angry at myself,” she told the TV station.
Ms Palmer said she had deleted the videos after she received a letter from a lawyer claiming she had edited them.
She said she was angry at the lack of communication from police, who she said were “completely disrespectful” when she called about the deletions.
The footage comes from a mobile phone taken before the incident took place – while she was standing outside the house.
She says in the video she repeatedly shouts to her husband to go inside, before she was forced to exit and she began walking home.
The lawyer – who has said he wishes to remain anonymous – sent Ms Palmer two emails on August 13, saying he intended to take action against her.
“There are no grounds to complain to the police and you cannot use force to stop your neighbour from filming you,” the emails stated.
Ms Palmer refused to delete or alter the footage.
“I don’t want that video of me to be available on the internet so I’m taking further steps to delete it,” she said. “It just happens that my husband has video and I had to do that.”
As of Friday afternoon the video was viewed more than 3.2 million times.
