A woman is accused of arcing a stun gun, yelling at a judge and kicking a sheriff’s deputy outside the Hamilton County Courthouse Monday.
Paula Bennett, 48, is charged with assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
In a court appearance Tuesday, Bennett’s attorney claimed the woman has been peacefully protesting in the area for several weeks.
“While demonstrating, she arced a stun gun device causing alarm to bystanders. While being questioned, she refused to calm down or I.D. herself,” an arrest report states.
According to court documents, Bennett was "making unreasonable noise" and yelling at a judge while arcing the stun device. That judge has not been identified.
A Sheriff’s deputy said Bennett then kicked him to the ground as she was being handcuffed.
Bennett’s attorney requested a low bond and called the incident a “first amendment issue.”
The judge set her bond at $60,000. She appears in court again Oct. 15.
