Deputy not indicted for tasering 72-year-old woman

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A deputy in Texas who shocked a 72-year-old woman with a Taser after she dared him to has been cleared by a grand jury.

A Travis County grand jury declined to indict Deputy Constable Christopher Bieze (BEEZ) on Wednesday on a charge of injury to an elderly person.

Bieze used a Taser on Kathryn Winkfein after she refused to sign a traffic citation on May 11. He had stopped her for speeding on Texas 71 west of Austin. Video from a camera mounted in the deputy's car captured the 4-foot-11 Granite Shoals woman struggling with Bieze and daring him to use the Taser on her.

An internal investigation concluded Bieze did not violate any county policies and he wasn't disciplined.
