41. Grama was combative and put herself, the cop, and motorist in danger.
She definantly deserved to be arested. not sure about being tazed, but a strugle, even with granny, could have ended with one party landing in the path of an on-comming car.

I love my granny rest her soul, but this granny was nasty, and should feel lucky to be alive after a stunt like that.
