Petitioning Woman Maced, Mauled By Police Dog

BERNALILLO, N.M. -- A woman who has been circulating a petition seeking removal of the Bernalillo mayor and a Bernalillo councilor was mauled by a police dog over the weekend following a chase.
Toni Osborn, of Bernalillo, was listed in satisfactory condition at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque.
Osborn's attorney, Brad Hall, said police were duped by information from people with a political interest in her silence.
Sandoval County Undersheriff Tim Lucero said his department received a call Sunday to investigate a pickup truck being driven by a woman who was destroying property and waving a firearm.
Lucero said Osborn's truck fled toward Albuquerque, where Albuquerque police used a special vehicle to pin the truck to an embankment. Osborn was reportedly Maced and a police dog was deployed after she refused to cooperate.
Authorities said she did not have a gun.
My take, she's a bit of a nut. Of course, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean people aren't out to get you.
