"He says I am pulling you over because you were on your cell phone," Black recalled.But that wasn't all. Unbeknown to her she said her driver's license had been suspended because she missed a court appearance on traffic tickets. And so, Black said the officer told her, "I am going to tow the vehicle because your license is suspended as well and I need your keys."
Black and the CHP officer got into a discussion about what would happen to the car. She wanted to leave the car for a friend to pick up. The police officer planned to bring in a tow truck to take the car away.
Black said, "I wasn't being nasty, I wasn't being rude, I wanted answers. Why is it that I can't get anyone with a license to get my vehicle?"In fact Tanisha Black was seven months pregnant. Black said next thing she knew, she felt a terrible pain through her body. The officer had shot her with a Taser and she fell to the ground.
But she said that officer didn't want to hear any more. "He said if you don't leave, get out of here with your son, then I am going to arrest you and he's going to go to Child protective Services," Black recalled.
"I just remember screaming 'Oh my God, oh my God, I am pregnant. You are Tasing me in my stomach. Are you really doing this to me over a suspended license?" Black recalled.Adam Goldman saw it happen from his window side table inside Starbucks and said Black didn't look like a threat. As for the CHP officer, Goldman said, "He seemed pretty quick to use the Taser."
