Great-grandma Kathryn "Sue" Winkfein comes across as an awfully nice, polite woman. So just how did this 4-foot-11 72-year-old wind up getting Tasered by a cop?
"I just lost my temper; I do that maybe twice a year, but that day I just lost it," Winkfein told TODAY's Matt Lauer Tuesday about the May 11 incident, when a sheriff's constable leveled her with a Taser gun during what had started out as a routine traffic stop.
The retired schoolteacher, who holds a master's degree, appeared alongside her son, Steve Eastland, and her attorney, Thomas Tourtellotte. Winkfein recently received an out-of-court, $40,000 settlement from Travis County, Texas, for her pain and suffering — which has the county's constables crying foul.
