Summit County Ohio Sheriff’s deputy Eric Vaughan in Akron attacked a woman after she started taking prescribed Tylenol for a tooth infection.
Siobhan Householder , 35, is charged with another resisting-arrest and obstruction of official business charges in addition to the original charge from April.
Householder , 35, went to court on May 8th after missing a court date for a warrant of failure-to-appear on a resisting-arrest charge. She was told to wait in the prisoner-holding room at the domestic relations court to have her court case date reassigned.
The video which contains no audio and shows Householder walk into the room with two handbags and a soda and she takes two of her prescribed Tylenol pills. This is when she tries to take a third pill and deputy Vaughan throws her to the ground.
Vaughan on video violently pulls her hair, bottom lip, and jaw backwards and down. Three other deputies arrive and Householder is placed in two sets of handcuffs at maximum tension. Householder’s hair is ripped out and she is left with cuts to her mouth and bruises.
Householder’s two bags were searched and all over-the-counter and prescription pills removed. Sheriff’s say they allegedly found two Diazepam tablets possibly in a blue latex glove emblematic of the type used by law enforcement and emergency medical paramedics.
Householder denies that the pills found belong to her.
Householder was taken to Akron General Medical Center re-booked and re-released without a warrant.
