Portland, Oregon, will pay $145,000 to a 71-year-old, blind and partially deaf woman whom police pepper sprayed and shocked three times with a stun gun. Authorities showed up at the home of Eunice Crowder to remove debris and trash. When she asked to make sure they didn't also remove a family heirloom, the city workers called police. Crowder says when the police arrived, she asked them who they were and she was knocked to the ground, kicked, sprayed and tasered. Her prosthetic eye was knocked out in the process. Police say she ignored their command not to enter a trailer on her property where the workers were putting the things the removed from the yard, kicked at them and tried to bite one officer.
