Texas state troopers have charged Martha Northington, 74, with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. Northington was among a crowd of people in the state capitol watching a debate on an abortion bill. After the debate, officers tried to clear the gallery. Apparently, Northington wasn't moving fast enough for them. Officers said she grabbed her chair as they began forcing everyone out. She says she was just reaching for her purse. When one trooper pushed her, video shows her complaining he is hurting her and trying to push him off. Troopers say she slapped him.
