Disturbing video shows sheriff's deputies tasering a woman --


Lauren Gotthelf, 34, was arrested on November 25, 2017, in Boulder, Colorado 

Police gave her ticket for smoking at a mall and letting her service dog off-leash

When she refused to sign the ticket, the officer took her to Boulder County Jail  

Body cam video shows Gotthelf arguing with multiple deputies in her jail cell 

Sgt Chris Reiss is then heard telling her that she will be placed on suicide watch 

The sergeant claimed in the video that Gotthelf had made suicidal statements 

When the deputies took Gotthelf out of her cell, they restrained her in a chair 

Gotthelf appeared to be resisting the restraints when Sgt Reiss tasered her 

On Tuesday, Gotthelf filed a lawsuit against Boulder County sheriff's deputies  

The sheriff's office said they have 'factual disagreements with the allegations'
