Shocking footage has emerged of an Ohio woman handcuffed and charged with resisting arrest after sheriffs deputies pinned her down on the floor pried open her mouth to retrieve a Tylenol tablet.
Surveillance video shows Siobhan Householder, 35, of Akron, being confronted last week by a police officer after she took the prescription medication the altercation left her injured and arrested.
Householder was in a holding area while waiting to make a court appearance when she took the medication for a tooth infection, she told the Akron Beacon-Journal.

Keep that up and you'll get a night stick dental extraction. That should cure your infection.
Prescription Tylenol--most likely Tylenol #3 (with codeine).
Too bad the cop didn’t lose some fingers.
Can you imagine if she had had oxycodone (that is what mine prescribes now)?
US cops began morphing into jack-booted thugs starting about 15 years ago. Maybe it is from the TV shows...”Get on the ground. Get on the ground—NOW”.
The good old boy on the beat is history.
You would never see Joe Friday, Frank Gannon, Officers Reed and Malloy or Poncherello and Baker act like that!
Good thing she was in a holding area and the cops don’t have guns or she could have been shot.
Juicy ‘excessive force’ lawsuit here.
“You would never see Joe Friday, Frank Gannon, “
That is true, but those shows were from the good old boys era, a time long passed.
“Just the facts mam”
Sadly a time long passed in too many areas of America!
Good thing there is a free press . . . in Britain.
“...While taking Ms. Householder into custody, Deputy Vaughan witnessed her attempt to ingest several pills, said the spokesperson. He restrained her for her safety and she was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released.
The bruised woman says she showed up to the courthouse May 8 on her own and was unaware she was in any kind of custody, that she felt free to take pills.
Householder was treated for a bloody mouth and handed summonses for resisting arrest and obstructing official business.
An internal affairs investigation remains ongoing, authorities said....No drug charges were filed.”
Jeez, this whole story is so filled with lies from the cops, I don’t know where to begin.
The woman had come in on her own but the lying “spokesperson” said he saw her “ingest several pills” while he was taking her into custody. The video clearly shows she was simply sitting their placidly and the valiant Deputy Vaughan came from off-view and immediately attacked her.
She was “handed summonses for resisting arrest and obstructing official business”. Thank God for video—cops can no longer get away with their lies.
The local government is probably thinking that they’ll have to settle with her—if a suit went to a civil trial with a jury, they’d have to worry that they would have some jurors like me (not automatically believing “authorities” and very persuasive with other jurors). They’d be paying much more than the amount their insurance would cover.
Now there is a law against taking doctor prescribed medicine? I would hope every one of those abusive and useless cops are now fired. Completely out of control. I think she should get a few million out of a lawsuit for that abuse.
them boy cops just as soon beat up a woman...its harder to beat up other men.....but women, they can get away with it...
An internal affairs investigation remains ongoing, authorities said....No drug charges were filed.
crazy ratio there, 4-5 : 1.
At 1:39 a guy comes in w/something in his right hand, as if asking them if they need it -- do you know what that was?
“Tylenol tablet... the prescription medication “
Something’s missing here. Tylenol 3 instead of Tylenol, perhaps?
Thread needs bamahead’s “have you been protected and served today?” photo.
Any cop ever does that to a woman I know and he’ll be a dead cop.
The sheriff’s deputy could have just summarily executed the woman and then went home safely knowing the other officers would cover for him by lying about what happened. More’s the pity there wasn’t a dog to shoot or small child to Taser. Nothing to see here, move on.
Thanks, bamahead. What a perfect addition. Sad situation.
Tell you what, I'm not a suing type person in the least, but I hope she gets the best *ambulance chaser* she can find and sues the crap out of the department.
Poor woman already had an infected tooth so the idiot cop messes up her mouth some more, I hope she gets millions.
Too many government workers are completely happy lving in their little niche in the chain of obedience.
Not only the department but the brutes **personally**!
Why she was there:"A sheriffs office spokesperson told the paper that Householder was taken into custody earlier in the day on a warrant for failure to appear for a domestic relations case."
Related, did you see this craziness?
Not sure, but I think they're hard to get to personally, maybe some sort of civil suit can be brought.
I didn't see that. It's disgusting. Where do they get these psychos from?
I saw the video and I didn’t see anything malicious on part of the deputy. He witnessed her consuming a pill and didn’t know what that pill was. He didn’t beat her or throw her around or anything else that bad cops do.
The alternative possibility for him, not knowing why the woman consumed a pill was a possible OD.
In this case, I can support the deputy.
According to the story I read, she failed to notify the police that she was carrying prescription medicine.
Why didn’t he just ask her to spit it out, then? It looks like he went full onto her as his FIRST action. He got QUITE physical with her.
I imagine she would have taken this pain medication earlier minus the drama and trauma if she’d known she was “in custody” and what that meant.
re your #36, did she know that she should inform them she had a prescription med? did they search her when she came in, did they ask her?
It’s my understanding that the cop did ask her to spit it out.
Tylenol is the gateway drug to Motrin.
“At 1:39 a guy comes in w/something in his right hand, as if asking them if they need it — do you know what that was?”
Haven’t the foggiest. But at 2:34, when the poor woman appears to have been rendered unconscious laying face down on the floor not moving, one of these brave officers comes in and props his knee and his body weight on the woman’s neck. Quite manly of him—his family must be VERY proud of his valor, kindness and understanding.
“...The alternative possibility for him, not knowing why the woman consumed a pill was a possible OD.
In this case, I can support the deputy.”
I don’t support this LOW IQ deputy. You say he didn’t “throw her around or anything else”? Perhaps you didn’t view the video. If there was a video of a husband doing the exact same acts on his wife, he’d be in jail on domestic abuse charges.
Wear your chains lightly.
The irony is lost on this bunch...
Oh' horse crap
How about the JBT first politely ask to see the pill bottle she had with her...she had the bottle right there with her instead of using excessive force...?
...but she didn't even have a chance...
At what point do the police have carte' blanche to manhandle a person who voluntarily was there because of a possible (small) issue that could have been easily resolved with common decency and normal human interaction... ?
Shiny badge syndrome is the problem
Well then, the proper response would have been to fill her with lead, 17 rounds, leaving one in the chamber in case someone else decided to get stupid. We simply cannot tolerate anyone taking medication without police knowledge and permission. Part of our problem is that such tactics in most jurisdictions are limited to those incarcerated in confinement facilities. This is clearly insufficient. Any citizen, no matter where they are and no matter what they are doing, need to be subject to the complete and total control of Law Enforcement, for their safety. These people are trained, they would never abuse their authority. Get with the program.
Sure, politely ask and ho make the proper phone calls, while she overdoses and foams at the mouth.
Good call, constable. We should promote you.
The reality is that the police have to treat every person as a potential addict, because once somebody has OD’d, they may only have a few seconds to live.
The police deal with a very different crowd than you or I do, so they have to respond differently. To you or I, it’s none of our business what somebody else puts in their mouth. To the police, they may be dealing with a drug addict who is either planning to smuggle something to somebody on the inside or take some illegal substance.
Unless you deal with addicts all the time, you’re hardly in a place to judge them.
Public (government) schools.
You can't be serious...
All they had to do is look at the pill bottle label...
As management in my place of employment, a few times a year I take a alcohol/drug awareness program which teach us the signs of observable potential addiction...
You are telling me the police don't have the training or discernment to make a judgment call on whether or not a person is a potential drug addict...?
I know there are situations that are outside of the norm...
How's that boot leather taste?
