DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators say a nude 80-year-old woman was tased after she attempted to attack a police chief and two of his officers using her walking stick in Dorchester County.

On May 21, the St. George Police Department responded to Gavin Street in reference to someone making loud noises in the area.

A police officer said he saw an elderly woman with no clothing standing on a porch. The officer says the woman was hitting the rail of the steps with her walking cane. As the officer was calling for EMS, the woman came down from the porch and was told by the officer to stand still.

The police chief and another officer then arrived on scene and provided a blanket to cover the woman.

A police report states that as officers tried to take the cane from the woman, she began to swing the cane at the three police officers. Another officer then arrived and tried talking with the woman, but police say the woman continued to swing at one of the officers and spoke "confusingly."

Investigators say as the woman was talking to an officer, another officer deployed his taser striking the woman in the back. EMS personnel then removed the taser prongs from the woman and transported her to Colleton Medical Center for treatment.

The owner of the property, where the woman was found, said three windows were broken at the home. Police say the woman was a former tenant of the property. The owner told police that before the woman caused damaged to the property, he attempted to give the woman's deposit back to which she refused.

Police say there was a total of $250 worth of damage to the property.

No charges were filed.
