Woman Tased At Middle School Football Game After Refusing To Wear Mask

Woman Tased At Middle School Football Game After Refusing To Wear Mask”

A resource officer in OH shocked a woman with a Taser and forcibly removed her from a football game when she refused to wear a face mask in the stands.

According to the Marietta Times, the venue hosted 300 fans for Wednesday's game, and only Kitts and her mother refused to comply.

After refusing to put her hands behind her back, the officer can be seen tasering her in the back and then handcuffing her, before escorting her out of the arena. Kitts is heard yelling in the video. In my opinion she was disobeying a police officer's orders, creating a public nuisance and then resisting arrest. As a result, the officer ordered the woman to exit the stadium or be forcibly removed and cited for trespassing.

'You're not arresting me for nothing, I ain't doing nothing wrong, ' she yells at the officer in response.

"Call the cops", the unseen woman directs someone else.

The people in the stands are taken aback that the woman is tased.

"Tasing this lady over not wearing a damn mask", a shocked witness can be heard saying.

Here's the thing. To say this woman was being arrested "over a mask" is disingenuous.

Kitts was reportedly charged with criminal trespass and released.

Kitts is seen in the video with a mask in her back pocket.

The woman, Alecia Kitts, was watching her son's game in the bleachers with her mother, who was also not wearing a mask, says The Marietta Times.

The Logan Police Department told the Marietta Times that the incident is under investigation.

The Logan-Hocking Local School District told NBC News affiliate WCMH that the woman was a fan of the opposing football team, Marietta City School.

"This rule has been in effect since we were told we could play", the report quotes Schultheiss saying.

'Everyone that came through ticketing tonight was reminded, we had regular announcements over the PA reminding you that mouths and noses needed to be covered and we had signs at the bathrooms'. If the guidelines are to wear a mask at sporting events in OH, what is the real issue at hand?

Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, such as a taxi, a vehicle service, or a private auto used for ride-sharing. A mask is also required when outside, but only when one is "unable to maintain six-foot social distance from people who are not household members".
