In yet another case of hot headed police officers going off on a whim and abusing a civilian, an Ohio woman was assaulted by up to five police officers at one point, all for having the audacity to take a prescribed pill for a severe tooth infection she was suffering. The citizen who was attacked was Siobhan Householder, a thirty five year old mother of three. She was awaiting to appear in court in a holding room off to the side of the court room when she took a pill that had been legally prescribed to her for her dental issues. When the police officer in the room with her saw her take it, he told her to spit it out. She said she can’t, and was about to tell the cop that she’d already swallowed it, but by then, as can be seen in the video, he’d set upon her and began choking her, taking her to the ground, and trying to force his hands down her throat.
The officers tried to rip her bottom lip away from her teeth. After the “incident” she was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She suffered cuts and bruises to her face and the inside of her mouth and the cops pulled large quantities of her hair out of her head. To top it all off, after the beating, Householder was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing official proceedings.
