The whole thing started when a police officer in Cashion, Oklahoma, pulled over 65-year-old Debra Hamil for a broken tail light.
A Wild Ride
Bodycam footage from the confrontation shows that Hamil asked the police officer to give her a warning and let her go. When he refused and continued writing the ticket, she became incensed and started cussing at him.
The police officer told her he was arresting her. In response, Hamil swore at him and drove off. This led to a crosstown police chase that finally ended with the police officer arresting Hamil in a parking lot.
Just a Country Girl
When she tried to kick him in the groin, he pulled out the Taser.
“I’m a country girl,” Hamil said in her defense. “I don’t like being thrown on the ground.”
Hamil was taken to the hospital after she complained that the Taser hurt her. She emerged to discover that she was charged with felony assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
She should have just taken the ticket.
Do you think the cop was too tough on this cantankerous grandma, or did she get what she deserved?
