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?
