Texas Grand Jury Fails to Indict Granny-Tasering Cop

Force was used against a 4'11" 72-year-old woman because she dared a burly officer to taser her, not because she posed a threat against him or anyone else.

A Travis County grand jury has declined to indict Deputy Constable

Christopher Bieze on a charge of injury to an elderly person after he used his Taser
stun gun on a 72-year-old woman last year.

The incident, which was captured on a patrol car video camera, generated
national attention. Kathryn Winkfein, who was stopped by Bieze on May
11, later appeared NBC's "Today" show.

In October, Winkfein accepted a $40,000 settlement from Travis County,
although she had sought more than $135,000.

Bieze had stopped her on Texas 71 in western Travis County on May 11 for
allegedly driving 60 mph in a 45-mph construction zone.

Winkfein, a 4-foot-11 great-grandmother from Granite Shoals, told Bieze that she
wouldn't sign the citation, video records show.

That led to a confrontation during which Bieze used his Taser on
Winkfein, who was later jailed, charged with resisting arrest and released.

An internal investigation found that Bieze had violated no policies, and
he was not disciplined.
