Woman, 70, tased 3 times as deputies try to arrest her grandson

Cops in Florida tased a 70-year-old woman three times, claiming she was uncooperative when they were trying to arrest her grandson. Barbara Pinkey was at home on Dec. 26 when deputies tried executing an arrest warrant for her grandson, Tevin Turner, for carrying a concealed firearm (a violation of his probation). Pinkey was arrested and charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer.

Pretty sure she wouldnt have been tazed at all if she had cooperated with the arrest warrant of her grandson.

Sounds like maybe the officers should have removed her from the area while they arrested her grandson. Tazing anyone 3x is bad; tazing a 70 year old woman is very bad. That said, she doesn't seem to have been a great influence in that grandson's life, either.

Wow. Grandson sneaks out the back while granma fights with the cops. Not directly his fault if Nana gets tazered, but just even a tiny iota of manhood on his pary could have saved her from that. That was a flaming pile of crap thing to do, and if it was one of my sons who left his grandmother in that position, I would turn him in myself, and throw his stuff in the trash, and not speak of him possibly several years.

Wholly 7 months

And somehow this will be the "Racist Cops" fault... You're not helping your grandson.

I like how the only tool in the tool chest for incidents of police brutality is a hammer. When things could have been handled in a more diplomatic way. The image of law enforcement has been seen to just escalate conflict and cause more harm than good.

Npc OK but three times... After the first she should have been cuffed n arrest affected... No officer control of scene...

Three times to tase.. Three... Is two times to many unless granny kept yanking prongs out... n court could see that as excessive force should granny lay a law suit... Point to tase... U taze blitz cuff read em their rights n go book em.... N pinkey u keep on the radar or deploy others after him... Pinkey blew his parole

After personally seeing what mothers do to get in officers way during arrests, I'm not surprised. Either way, they bodily remove her or taze her, its not a good situation.

Officers did their job. I don't see what the problem is.

Only time I have had to ever tase twice.. The cat was high on love boating tobacco... Formaldehyde dipped cigar...n ripped the taser prongs out of his chest.. Whoa... N took off running naked down a county road... That was a nutz call

Kyle wear the badge n one of these... Ur point is valid on its face but these calls move fast sometimes n if pinkey was carrying concealed in parole violation n grams is distracting....which sometimes hard to know.. N u have no clue where pinkey is well oops the call just escalated... Now grams could have been just freaking cause she fears for pinkeys life... Opps OK.. But grams freaked out by now n well being hindering to execution of warrant n assaultive sometimes ur options fast disappear... But my question. Y three times..?????? . That's two more usually then needed to affect an arrest........ Internal review of training standards on those there at minimum needed asap..... Thank God no one got shot

Fin 7 months

No it's officer training and standards issue... One tase n cuff stuff arrest.. Wtf r two more tases about..

Fin 7 months

Three times seriously.... Not cuffed n controlled after first time.. Oh would love to read that report n chew some asses up...... Grams u better get Dan newlan to represent u in a law suit... He was a Leo before becoming a lawyer down there... N grams if ur pinkey was in violation of parole... Let cops do their job... I know it was scarey but it's not worth getting tased
