PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -
A Price Hill woman claims she was tased at least six times by Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies for disciplining her son.
London Hazley, 24, said she has since been released from jail and wants the deputy involved to be fired.
She claims the incident started when she forgot her keys and went back into court to retrieve the.
Hazley said that her 2-year-old son didn't want to go through the metal detectors.
"I smacked him on his butt and put him back in his seat and the deputy was like, 'I'm going to call 241-KIDS on you,' stated Hazley. "I told him I don't care that's my son and I can punish him any way I want."
That's when Hazley said one of the deputies told her she had to leave, but she responded saying she had to get her keys.
Hazley said she told the deputy she wasn't going to leave, she was getting her keys, and that's when she claims the deputy went to arrest her.
Parts of the encounter were captured on cell phone video, obtained by FOX19 NOW.
In the video, you can hear a child crying and sheriff 's deputies giving orders. It captured part of the melee between London Hazley and Hamilton County Sheriff Deputies Thursday at the Justice Center.
"Get off me," she yells in the video.
You can hear yelling and battling with deputies and then clicks of a taser going off.
The sheriff's office said Hazley didn't comply with commands, resisted and started cursing. Officials said tasing her was the best way to keep her safe and the deputies.
