An Ohio woman not wearing a mask at a middle school football game was arrested after an encounter with a police officer who reportedly used a Taser before handcuffing her.
Video posted of the incident showed the woman, identified as Marietta City Schools parent Alecia Kitts, struggling with an officer whose own mask came off during the heated confrontation as she called out the “bullsh–” at the game being held outdoors.
Tiffany Kennedy, the woman who shot the video which was publicly shared on YouTube, indicated that Kitts was not wearing a mask because she has asthma and was given no warning before the officer approached her, according to The Ohio Star.
“Get off of me,” Kitts could be heard telling the Logan Police Department Officer as seen in the video. Logan junior high school assistant principal Adam Twiss also approached the scene.
“You’re not arresting me for nothing, I ain’t doing nothing wrong,” she yelled as he attempted to handcuff her, telling Kitts, who had been sitting with her mother on the outdoor bleachers, to put her hands behind her back.
Kitts had reportedly driven an hour and a half from Marietta in order to watch her son play in the eighth-grade football game at Logan, according to the Ohio Star. Although she was not wearing a mask, she appeared to be socially distanced from others as she sat on the bleachers with family.
Logan Athletic Director Theresa Schultheiss noted that only the mother and grandmother seen in the video were “having issues with compliance,” according to the Marietta Times which referred to the woman who shot the video as Tiffany Lynn.
Well, at least the Left is standing up for her and condemning this cop’s actions. Right?
