VIDEO: Resisting Woman TASERed at Apple Store
A Massachusetts woman who was TASERed outside an Apple Store claims a communication gap between her and the officers caused the incident.
Nashua (N.H.) Police officers used a TASER to subdue Xiaojie Li outside of the Apple Store at the Pheasant Lane Mall Tuesday night. Li allegedly resisted arrest after she was told she could only buy two iPhones.
Cell-phone video of the incident was posted on YouTube Tuesday showing officers attempting to subdue a screaming Li. Police sources told WHDH that Li continued to resist as officers handcuffed her. Store employees had told Li she was no longer welcome inside the store.
Li told WHDH that her lack of English-speaking ability caused her not to be able to communicate with the officers.
