The Elmira Police Department says they tasered a women this morning because she refused to spit out the drugs she had in her mouth.Police say they had no choice but to tase her for fear she would overdose on the drugs. Police pulled over her car near Columbia and First Street after they saw her going in and out of a home under surveillance as a crack house.

She came out of the car but wouldn't open her mouth. Police assumed she had purchased an illegal substance inside the home and put it in her mouth to destroy the evidence by eating it.If that had happened police say they feared an overdose. But by tasing the women they were able to get the substance out of her mouth.

Police say the women eventually spit out an un-named illegal narcotic substance. But in fear she had swallowed some of it they took her to St. Joseph's Hospital in Elmira. Charges against her are pending.
