Reno Police Taser Woman Involved in Fight, Knocking Her Out Cold

A fight between two men in Nevada resulted in police tasering a woman who appeared not to be fighting, causing her to fall straight back and slam her head to the pavement, knocking her out cold in a pair of bone-chilling videos posted online over the weekend.

However, Reno police said the woman was wielding an extendable baton as she approached an officer trying to break up the fight by holding on to her brother, which was when a second officer tasered her from behind. And the second video of the Saturday night melee to emerge, which was recorded from inside a car, does show this.

According to an email from Reno police officer Tim Broadway in response to a PINAC inquiry, the woman was treated on scene for minor injuries” before being transported to jail with the two men who were fighting.

> There are two videos which were posted to Facebook in regards to this incident. In the other video which you may not have seen, you can see that the female you claim was an “innocent” bystander was in fact actively participating in the disturbance. The female was armed with a weapon and approaching an officer who was trying to de escalate the fight. Officers were heard on the video instructing all parties to quit resisting which the female did not adhere to and “less lethal” force was used to stop her from advancing on Officers which again is depicted in the video.
> The female and the two males involved were all arrested after the female was treated on scene for minor injuries and all were then transported to the local detention facility. The extent of her “minor” injuries cannot be disclosed due to HIPAA laws but she was not requiring any other medical attention other than basic first aid.

The woman has been [**identified as Lena Conway, 28**](http://www.mynews4.com/news/story/Viral-video-shows-downtown-Reno-fight-watch-it/f7ALj3GbS0mgXmjZhhM1OQ.cspx), and was charged with obstructing and resisting an officer and possession of a dangerous weapon.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
