The cop was working as a school resource officer when Eaton arrived at the school angry about a disciplinary action taken against her child. Lee County School Superintendent Jimmy Weeks spoke with the North Mississippi Daily Journal about the issue:
“The parent was upset because the child was disciplined,” said Weeks, who noted the child’s punishment did not involve corporal punishment.
Weeks said the parent was irate and met with Guntown Principal Steven Havens and began to use profanity in the office. The school resource officer was brought in and asked her to stop using profanity but she continued to do so, Weeks said.
“When he told her she was under arrest, she became more irate and he used the Taser on her,” Weeks said.
But what led to the tasering is the most interesting of the entire story.
When Eaton was asked to calm down, she allegedly stormed out of the office. The officer followed quickly on her heels and told her that she was under arrest. This made Eaton even more irate and when she kept walking he used the taser on her. When that didn’t subdue her, he used it again.

Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall said Eaton was charged with “disorderly conduct, public profanity, resisting arrest and failure to comply with a law enforcement officer,” reports MSNBC.
She refused medical treatment before being taken to jail, where she quickly made bail.
