MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A grandmother is left shaken up and angry after she said she was tased and arrested for not letting Manatee County deputies into her home.
Barbara Pinkney said deputies came to her home looking for a man who violated his probation but left with a grandmother who’s never been in trouble with police.
Video shot by her grandson’s wife shows her refusing and trying to close the door. It shows a deputy grab the 70-year-old woman’s wrist as she pulls back. She is then tased and taken to the ground hard.
