Springfield Sued Over Tasering of Pregnant Woman


A woman who was eight months pregnant when she was tasered by Springfield police during a parking lot altercation is now suing the city, claiming excessive force.

 

30-year-old Lucinda White received a “drive stun” jolt from a Taser when police said she attempted to interfere with the arrest of her boyfriend.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that White claims she was driven to the ground in a display of force that was unnecessary and unreasonable.

 

The suit also claims Springfield police have a history of using excessive force against pregnant women.

 

A city spokesman would not comment on pending litigation.
