Description: Bradenton, Florida — A sheriff's deputy tased a 70-year-old woman three times while trying to arrest someone else at her home, reports CBS Tampa affiliate WTSP-TV, citing arrest reports. The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said deputies were seeking someone wanted for carrying a concealed firearm on December 26. The arrest report said Barbara Pinkney met deputies at the door after another person at the home became uncooperative. Deputies said she told them they couldn't come in without a search warrant but they told her they didn't need a search warrant since they were executing an arrest warrant. The report said deputies told Pinkney she could be arrested for obstructing justice if she kept refusing to cooperate with them. At that point, she tried to shut the door on them, according to deputies. The arrest report said when one deputy tried to arrest Pinkney she pulled away and pushed him in the chest. The deputy pulled out his taser and pulled the trigger, but it didn't have any effect, according to the report. So, the deputy tased her again and it sent her to the ground. But she kept resisting, the report said, so she was tased a third time. Investigators said a second deputy had to jump to help restrain Pinkney. She was arrested for alleged felony battery on a law enforcement officer and obstructing justice and released on $1,000 bond. WTSP reached out to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office for comment and was told to call back Monday. There was no definite word on the fate of the person the deputies went to the home to arrest or who the person is. But the Bradenton Herald reports that he couldn't be found and that a deputy noted that, "There was enough time during the chaos at the front of the residence for (the suspect) to get out of the rear of the residence." An activist group called Answer Suncoast is organizing a march to show support for Pinkney for Tuesday night.

Description: 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. Around 7:30 in the morning the day after Christmas, Pinkney received the unexpected visitors. “We heard a knock at the door. Actually, there wasn’t a knock. I think they kicked the door. Bam! Bam! At the door,” Pinkney said. Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies say they came to serve an arrest warrant to Tevin Turner, Pinkney’s grandson, on violation of probation for carrying a concealed weapon. “When he was on probation he gave this as his address, but he wasn’t living here,” she said. That’s not what deputies thought as they came to Pinkney’s house wanting to get in. 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. “I was just hollering. I was scared. I didn’t know what else to do. I was just hollering,” Pinkney said. The probable cause affidavit shows Pinkney was hit three times with a stun gun in her “left arm,” her “back,” her “upper back,” and was held to the ground with the deputy’s “knee.” Visible injuries are still seen on her body. Barbara Pinkley, on her birthday, was arrested for obstruction and resisting an officer. “It’s not something that you see every day or something you expect to happen. Even if she wasn’t my grandmother. Dang, this is a 70-year-old woman,” said Elizabeth Francisco, Pinkney’s granddaughter-in-law and the woman who recorded the video of the arrest. Now, the woman who said she’s never had any problems with law enforcement said she’s traumatized and can’t sleep at night. “I don’t know. Whenever I see police I just try to not look at them,” Pinkney said in tears. Pinkney has a court date set for Jan. 17, 2020, but already the community is rallying behind her. MCSO has not responded to the video, only to tell 8 On Your Side what they say happened that Thursday morning. Her grandson Tevin Turner has not been caught. Pinkney said he was never there, while MCSO said he may have gotten away from the rear of the house during all the chaos.
