LINCOLN–(KFOR July 30)–The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy used a Taser on a woman, after she was seen hitting the passenger in her vehicle on Monday night about a mile north of the Lincoln Airport.

Just before 7pm, Sheriff Terry Wagner said a deputy stopped to help a vehicle that was stuck in a ditch near the 3000 Block of West McKelvie Road.

When a deputy got out,  he saw the driver, 25-year-old Jennifer Rodriguez, hit her passenger in the face.  When the deputy tried to intervene, Rodriguez stuck the deputy multiple times, and a Taser had to be used, LSO said.

Rodriguez was taken to the hospital for treatment and then lodged in jail for second-degree assault, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest.  The other woman was treated and released.
