According to Salem-News.com:

Police in Texas are standing behind a deputy’s repeated taser attacks on an elderly great grandmother who was reportedly driving fifteen miles an hour over the speed limit in a construction zone.

Kathryn Windfein says she was driving to Austin for a twice weekly shopping trip when she was pulled over for speeding by a Travis County Constable deputy. She admits that she was speeding, but says the deputy’s story about her “resisting arrest” and being “violent” is completely untrue.
