A traffic stop for speeding in a construction zone led to the tasering of a 72-year old great-grandmother by a Texas deputy. Kathryn Winkfein, 72, of Granite Schoals, Texas was then handcuffed, and taken away to jail for resisting arrest and detention.

The deputy said that when he asked Winkfein to sign the speeding ticket he issued, she refused, used profane language and became violent, at which point he tased her.

The great-grandmother admits to speeding, but denies the rest of the deputy's allegations, and has hired an attorney to represent her, she tells a Fox News reporter:

Winkfein showed FOX 7 her taser scars.

"Here and here. Two places, side by side. It's unreal. It's like an electric shock," she said.

"I wasn't argumentative, I was not combative. This is a lie. All of this is a lie, pulled away from him I did not," she said, reading the arrest affidavit.
Regardless, it's difficult to fathom how a speeding ticket evolved to the point where a trained law enforcement officer felt the need to jolt an elderly woman with a taser.

Fox News has requested a copy of the deputy's dashboard camera video recording of the encounter, but has not yet received a response.
