I have seen diabetic patients get low blood sugar or high blood sugar and act drunk when they were not really drunk.
The attitude, 'if she breaks the law and resists arrest, she deserves whatever she gets" attitude some posters have is really disturbing to me.
That's not the way the law works. Cops are the ones that are supposed to arrest people, juries and judges are supposed to be the one to decide what their punishment is.

I agree she was boxed in already... she had no weapon (although a car can be used as one), however 53yr old women vs. a**hole cop...? He could have subdued her with less force, not to mention they ended up tasering her so...
But then again I wasn't there so I guess my judgment from an outside view isn't necessarily right, but it sounds to me/looks to me like it was excessive.

Now, if our local LEOs had delusions of godhood or suffered from contempt of cop this could have ended much differently. As it was all they did was shut his car off, remove him from the car and cuff him. No injuries. But the point is, they never think beyond drunk driving. Those suffering from Epilepsy, alzheimer's, diabetes.. the list goes on... can all appear to be drunk.
