BODYCAM: Grandmother Kicks Officer, Gets Tased
She attacked the officer, she said, because she's "a country girl"By Calibre Press | Aug 1, 2019
An Oklahoma cop tried to get a driver to sign an $80 ticket for a broken tail light this month, but the driver refused — and body camera footage obtained by TV station KOCO captured the aggressive, startling scene that unfolded next.
“I don’t think that I deserve to pay $80 for something that is fixable — and I can fix it, if that’s all you want me to do,” 65-year-old driver Debra Hamil told a Cashion, Oklahoma, police officer in the video, which was recorded during a July 16 incident, according to court records.
That’s when the officer tried to arrest Hamil.
“All right, go ahead and step out of the car,” the officer tells her, “because you’re under arrest.”
“No, I’m not,” Hamil responds, rolling up her window. “You be fair with me, and I’ll be fair with you.”
Hamil tells the office he’s “full of s–t” and then drives off in her pickup, video shows.
