Deputy Tasers woman, 72, during traffic stop

AUSTIN, Texas – She dared a deputy constable to shock her with a Taser.

So, he did.

Video released by a Travis County Constable’s Office shows Deputy Chris Bieze confronting 72-year-old Kathryn Winkfein after stopping her for speeding on May 11 just outside Austin.

Video from a camera mounted in the deputy’s car shows Winkfein cursing and challenging the deputy and even daring him to use the Taser on her.

“You’re going to shove me? You’re going to shove a 72-year-old woman?” she yelled.

Winkfein told KTBC-TV in Austin that she did nothing to provoke the use of the Taser.

But Precinct 3 Sgt. Maj. Gary Griffin said Bieze used the Taser only after Winkfein became combative.

There was no immediate comment from Winkfein on Wednesday. A call to her home was answered by a fax machine.
