Pregnant Women Tasered Over Parking Ticket
Here’s a tip.
Don’t rip up a parking ticket and throw it in a police officer’s face.
Because you could get yourself tasered and thrown in jail.
That’s what a happened to a pregnant woman Wednesday, who was unhappy with a cop who wrote her a ticket for parking in a spot reserved for the disabled in a southside Walgreen’s parking lot according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
After shredding the ticket and thrusting at the officer, she swore at the cop then tried to flee the scene. She was then tasered with a stun gun, apprehended, thrown to the ground, handcuffed and arrested in front of her children who were still sitting in the car.
The woman was released from the hospital but was charged with a misdemeanor for simple assault of the officer.
The whole incident is now being investigated by the Independent Police Review Authority.
The fine for parking in a handicapped parking spot illegally is $250.
