Woman Tasered By Cop Files Federal Lawsuit

An Akron woman who was Tasered in November by Stow Police Officer Jesse Reedy, who was cleared for his use of force by a committee, has filed a Federal lawsuit claiming police brutality.

On Nov. 5, Chelsea Garrett, 23, was charged with reckless operation, a minor-misdemeanor, and obstruction official business, a second-degree misdemeanor by Stow and charged with a DUI in Akron for bouncing off a median wall on S.R. 8, hitting a vehicle in Akron and leaving the scene of the accident. When she was in Stow, she almost swiped a cruiser Nov. 5, according to the dashcam video attached to this story.

“I would never deny that, I was scared watching the video, seeing myself drive like that,” Garrett said.

Garrett says she is a diabetic, weighs 90 pounds and on Nov. 5 she was taking an over-the-counter medicine for a cold.

Reedy, who has been on Stow's force four and a half years, told t

  • The cop must have felt intimidated by the girl's imposing size.

  • In 1983 a 105 lb woman sent a 230 lb cop to his coffin where I live. She had a knife hidden in her palm and went in his neck. He died from blood loss the following day...also for being Mr. Nice Cop.

    The ones who have a problem for what this officer did would be the first to use the taser.

  • Todays lesson: If you notice that you are blacking out while driving. Pull over pick up the phone and phone a friend.

  • The first thing she needs to do if she wins her lawsuit is to fix her teeth. In all seriousness, I doubt she will win. In fact, she should have her license revoked because clearly she cannot operate a vehicle safely in her condition.

      She shouldn't have been driving - we'll agree to that.

      Did she pose a threat to the officer?? NOPE...

      She didn't deserve what she got,,, the pig just wanted to test out his new toy.

  • That cop was so paranoid of that skinny girl, he should've just put handcuffs on her instead of using taser

    • @Amusing well, following that logic would lead us to any time an officer has an interaction it should be at gun/tazer point. because hey, you never know.

      i would argue that if one feels threatened by a 90 lb. girl they should get a less threatening job.

      How would the officer know if this girl had any martial arts training? Most people being arrested don't provide the officer with a curriculum vitae in advance.

  • It always seems to be "within company guidelines" when they use excessive force. What happened to law enforcement? They turned into a bunch of fat chickens. This girl could have easily been taken down without a taser even if she had a weapon in her hand. Sorry excuse for a cop. He should change occupations if he is too afraid to do this job properly.

    • @pootin
      Just because she was in the wrong does not mean he was in the right. Nothing in this situation looked like it required a taser. I think sex and weight is a factor even if you want to call it discrimination. Everything is a factor.
      I think he is just an idiot with anger management issues.
