Pregnant woman shocked with stun gun sues police (VIDEO)

NBC Chicago – A pregnant woman who was shocked with a stun gun last week has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in Chicago’s U.S. District Court.

Tiffany Rent’s attorneys say she should not have been shocked with a stun gun in a dispute with officers over a parking ticket.

“I was so scared,” she said tearfully. “I was afraid because the officer showed no lack of concern [sic]… I’m almost sure he knew I was pregnant.”

Rent, whose attorneys said enduring a high-risk pregnancy when police shocked her, was ticketed June 5 for parking in a handicapped spot in the Walgreen’s lot on the 110 block of South Michigan Avenue.

Rent said she pulled into the spot while her fiance ran into the store, then got out of the car to re-seat her 3-year-old when a Chicago police officer began writing her a ticket.
