Woman wielding fake gun tased by police outside Miami courthouse

MIAMI (WSVN) — A tough takedown took place outside a South Florida courthouse after an unruly woman confronted police officers with what they said was a fake gun.

Cell phone video recorded outside the Metro Justice Building in Miami showed the woman being detained by police officers.

In the video, the woman stood on the street with her hands in the air, placed something on the ground, and was then taken down by officers. As she was taken down, a Taser went off.

Now, she’s behind bars and has been charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm.
