An Arizona woman says U.S. Border Patrol agents threatened her with a Taser and knife after she demanded to know why she was stopped, according to a new video from the ACLU.
Clarisa Christiansen, a U.S. citizen, says three U.S. agents stopped her on a backcountry road 40 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona. When Christiansen refused to exit until the agents could provide a reason for wanting to search her car, one agent allegedly threatened to use a Taser on her.
