Boulder County police taser woman who's already restrained on a chair

When they say stop resisting, but you already have a bag on your head and wrists are restrained to the chair. Actually, it's not a bag, but it is a spit hood in case suspects/inmates spit on the officers. It's so the people don't get loogey's hocked on them.

Lauren Gotthelf filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday morning for an incident that occurred Nov. 25, 2017.


The 34-year-old was ticketed by a Boulder police officer for smoking on the Pearl Street Mall and allowing her service dog to be off-leash. When Gotthelf refused to sign the summons, she was taken to the Boulder County Jail.

Once at the jail, Sgt. Chris Reiss can be heard on body cam footage telling Gotthelf, "Based on your suicide statements, you're going on suicide watch."


Gotthelf is heard denying she made any suicidal statements but there is no body cam that recorded what she may have said moments earlier, only the interaction between her and deputies that followed."
