Tasered Over Tickets Lady Files Lawsuit
I wasn’t there.
And you weren’t there.
So neither of us know what really happened back on June 5th when Chicago Police officers used a stun gun to subdue an eight month pregnant Tiffany Rent.
But Thursday she’s filed a lawsuit against the City of Chicago according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
If you recall, Rent parked her car illegally in a handicapped parking spot. After being ticketed by a police officer, an enraged Rent tore up the ticket and allegedly threw it in the face of the cop. Then, after ignoring the commands of the police officers, Rent tried to evade the police by driving away.
At some point she was tasered, subdued and arrested.
One could argue she had it coming.
One could also argue police should never use a stun gun on a pregnant woman.
Perhaps fault needs to be divided equally between both parties.
In the end, it seems a court will decide who’s right.
Here’s the Sun-Times story, “Pregnant woman cries, announces suit over Taser incident with cops.”
