Caught on Tape: Great Granny Gets Tased

AUSTIN, Texas (CBS/KTBC) The video is shocking: an Austin policeman tasering a 72-year-old great grandmother, who police claim used profanity and was physically non-compliant, whatever that means.

Kathryn Winkfein, the great-grandma in question, says that's nonsense. She does admit to speeding.

And though you can clearly hear her screaming on the tape, she was not seriously hurt.
