[VIDEO] Woman Left Brain Dead After Being Tasered By Officer When She Attempted To Flee While Handcuffed
Danielle Maudsley. 20. was arrested by Florida Highway Patrol on a suspected hit-and-run that had occurred back in September. After being taken to the Patrol Station, she quickly attempted to flee the scene, while still handcuffed.
Trooper Daniel Cole follows the young woman outside and instead of attempting to run and grab her, retreats to using his taser. Maudsley is struck in the back and collapses to the ground, while hitting her head on the way down. Even though the girl is now brain-dead and the entire incident was caught on a dash cam, Trooper Cole has been cleared on any wrong-doing.
It is unlikely that 20-year-old Danielle will ever wake up, and was found to have cocaine and oxycodone in her system at the time. This may have led to her spontaneous decision to try to run from the troopers. Even is this is the case, Cole should have made a more aggressive attempt to catch the girl (what again, was still handcuffed) before using a weapon that could debilitate the young lady.
‘Tell me that’s not excessive force. I’m not saying she was an angel, but she didn’t deserve that.’
‘He couldn’t reach out and grab her? He was an arm’s length away. My daughter is dead because of this. She won’t come back.’
Cole’s claim is that he was worried about the young girl’s safety because she happened to be running towards a highway. He also explained that he wouldn’t do anything differently, if given the opportunity.

Donny Brook Mail – A New Zealand woman had her hand almost completely severed when a sex romp on a bathroom sink in Croatia went awry, stuff.co.nz reports.
The Croatian Times newspaper reported the 28-year-old, known as Amy R, was having sex on the sink with an Englishman in the island town of Hvar when the porcelain broke and the sharp edge sliced her wrist, leaving her hand hanging by just the skin.
Police spokesman Kraljevic Gudelj said: “It appears they were engaged in a passionate act in the bathroom where at some stage the sink broke – leaving a jagged edge that severed the woman’s hand when she fell to the floor.”
The hand was reattached after a six-hour operation by surgeons in the city of Split.
The British participant fled and Croatian police are looking for him.
New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed it was aware of the case and was providing assistance.
The Croatian Times said the couple had met in Croatia and ended up on a yacht called Anete in a local marina.
“The young woman almost died, and was only saved after she was airlifted to hospital where doctors managed to reattach the severed limb. It had only been attached by a small amount of skin,” the police spokesman said.
“We believe it was probably an accident but the British man has fled and the New Zealand girl is understandably hard to speak to.”
