    Bloodied 70-year-old woman cuffed for having a brown lawn

    OREM, Utah (AP) -- A 70-year-old woman arrested in a dispute over her brown lawn pleaded not guilty Tuesday, then stood by as a Los Angeles lawyer waved handcuffs for the cameras outside court.


    Betty Perry, left, sits with attorney Gloria Allred in Utah's Fourth District Court on Tuesday in Orem, Utah.


    Betty Perry is charged with resisting arrest and failing to maintain her landscaping, both misdemeanors.

    She was arrested July 6 after failing to give her name to a police officer who visited her home.

    During a struggle, Perry fell and injured her nose. She spent more than an hour in a holding cell before police released her.

    "I ask the citizens of Orem: How many of you would like to have your great-grandmother taken from her home with bruises and blood and placed in handcuffs for failing to water her lawn?" attorney Gloria Allred said.

    "Let's bring sanity back to law enforcement," she said.

    The mayor and City Council apologized, and the police department said the situation could have been handled differently. But the city attorney still is pressing charges, and Perry is due back in court next month.

    A state investigation found that Officer James Flygare acted properly in arresting Perry after trying to get her to cooperate.

    Perry's water had been turned off for about nine months, at her request, although she was living at the house at the time of the arrest.

    That's messed up. Maybe she's physically unable to get out there and water. Maybe she can't afford to pay the water bill. So many factors. Plus she's elderly. Failure to maintain landscaping??? Jeez.

    btw - I thought that was Leona Helmsley sitting next to her.

    That's what you get for not watering your lawn.

    Wheelchair-Bound Woman Dies After Being Shocked With Taser 10 Times

    Wed Sep 19, 9:38 AM ET

    A Clay County woman's family said it's seeking justice after their loved one died shortly after being shocked 10 times with Taser guns during a confrontation with police.


    The family of 56-year-old Emily Delafield said it would take the Green Cove Springs Police Department to court, according to a WJXT-TV report.

    In April 2006, officers with the police department said they were called to a disturbance at a home in the 400 block of Harrison Street just before 5 p.m.

    In a 911 call made to the Green Cove Springs, Delafield can be heard telling a dispatcher that she believed she was in danger:

    Dispatcher: And what's the problem?

    Delafield: My sister is waiting on my property.

    Dispatcher: Your what?

    Delafield: My sister (inaudible) is on my property trying to harm me.

    Officers said they arrived to find Delafield in a wheelchair, armed with two knives and a hammer. Police said the woman was swinging the weapons at family members and police.

    Within an hour of her call to 911, Delafield, a wheelchair-bound woman documented to have mental illness, was dead.

    Family attorney Rick Alexander said Delafield's death could have been prevented and that there are four things that jump out at him about the case.

    "One, she's in a wheelchair. Two, she's schizophrenic. Three, they're using a Taser on a person that's in a wheelchair, and then four is that they tasered her 10 times for a period of like two minutes," Alexander said.

    According to a police report, one of the officers used her Taser gun nine times for a total of 160 seconds and the other officer discharged his Taser gun once for a total of no more than five seconds.

    A medical examiner found Delafield died from hypertensive heart disease and cited the Taser gun shock as a contributing factor, the report said. On her death certificate, the medical examiner ruled Delafield's death a homicide.

    The family said it plans to sue the Green Coves Springs Police Department now that it has all the reports regarding their loved one's death.

    "We're going to try to compensate the estate and the family and try to get justice," Alexander said.

    He said he believes the evidence weighs heavily in favor of Delafield's family and that justice will be served.

    "I think that this evidence is going to show, along with some of the evidence we've collected outside of here, that there is no reason Emily Delafield should have died that day," Alexander said.

    He said he plans to file a notice to sue sometime before the end of the year.
