A Palm Harbor woman was Tasered and then arrested by a deputy outside a Dunedin assisted living facility, according to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office spokesperson.
At about 2 p.m on Feb. 8, two Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies went to the Nurses Helping Hands assisted living facility at 1585 Curlew Rd. to serve an arrest warrant for Christine Chase, 46, of Palm Harbor. Chase was wanted for two counts of obtaining property in return for a worthless check, according to a Pinellas County Jail charge report.
The deputies learned that Chase was visiting someone at the assisted living facility, so they went there to arrest her. The deputies approached Chase and she bolted, running outside the assisted living facility. The deputies chased her, but she reportedly resisted arrest and was Tasered. Deputies arrested her and took her to the Pinellas County Jail, according to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office spokesperson.
A Pinellas County Jail charge report shows that Chase was charged with resisting an officer without violence and two counts of obtaining property in return for a worthless check.
