A Tallahassee police officer is on paid leave after using a Taser on a 61-year-old woman Tuesday night (Sept. 30).
Inquiring about one of the suspects that was cuffed, Viola Young, 61, approached the police vehicle. Officers repeatedly asked Young to take a step back. Young refused and an officer told Young that she was under arrest for refusing to obey an officer and obstructing officers’ legal duties in the middle of a crime scene.
The Police Chief is conducting an investigation on the matter to show the community that there was nothing done wrong on behalf of the officer.
