Grandma Files Lawsuit Over Alleged Police Drubbing She Took For Her Cupcakes
Apparently not everyone likes grandma’s cupcakes.
Seventy-eight-year-old grandmother Mary Poole is still recovering from injuries after what she claims was a violent attack from a school district police officer last year, ABC30 reports. Now the California woman has finally filed a lawsuit, citing $180,000 in medical bills, a dislocated shoulder and fracture, and the intense pain of being maced twice, in the face.
Poole is alleging a litany of wrongdoing by the district’s officer: excessive force, elder abuse, assault and false arrest.
“I hadn’t seen my granddaughters for some time, and I wanted to see them, and so I baked some cupcakes and bought some cookies for my granddaughters’ classroom,” Poole told ABC30.
Poole says when she arrived at her granddaughter’s school, a Clovis Unified police officer stopped her, saying there was a restraining order against her.
Poole says she tried to explain, but says the officer then sprayed her in the face with mace twice, threw her down and dragged her across the ground. Poole was not arrested, and there was not a restraining order against her. The officer still works for the district.
Reports were unclear about how Poole then got back home and to the hospital.
