Video:A deaf Tacoma woman who called police to report an assault in her home says she was instead tased by officers and jailed for three days without access to an interpreter, as required by Washington state law.
Lashonn White says the officers who responded to her 911 call were told repeatedly she was deaf and could only communicate through sign-language, an interpreter and a special video equipped phone.
According to the 911 transcript, a dispatcher told White to wait outside her apartment complex for two Tacoma police officers — identified as Ryan Koskovich and Michael Young.
