Caught on Tape: 73-Year-Old Woman is Tasered During Traffic Stop
When 73-year-old Kathryn Winkfein was pulled over for speeding in May, she wasn't exactly cooperative with Travis County, Texas Deputy Christ Bieze. She refused to sign her speeding ticket, then tried to head back to her car...
The deputy gave her a verbal warning, threatening to use his taser. But the codgerly grandma didn't listen. So Bieze blasted her not once, but twice while the 73-year-old woman was already on the ground. The footage comes from a camera mounted on the taser itself.
Winkfein won a $40,000 settlement in the case. After all, a cop who can't subdue a 73-year-old without a taser should have never been allowed on the job.
