Danielle Maudsley is in coma and doctors said she might never wake up, she was left in this stage when she was tasered by a police officer when she tried to flee from Florida Highway Patrol Station.
20 year-old Danielle Christine Maudsley born on September 9th, 1991 in St. Petersburg, Florida went to Northeast High School, last September 19th. was arrested after a suspected of a hit a run, driving without a license and leaving the scene of two traffic accidents by the Florida Highway Patrol Station, she was handcuffed when she ran out the door and Trooper Daniel Cole ran after her, he took off his tasered gun and hit her in the neck. Ms. Maudsley screamed, fell to the ground hitting her head.
In the footage below you can see her sitting down, putting her hands on her head before, the officer asked to lied down and she did, next thing you hear is Danielle crying and begging them to help her get up, because she can’t, the trooper then asked what was she thinking, he wanted her to lied down and stay that way, she continues to say “I can’t get up” the last words she last said.
After that excessive force that brought her down and caused her brain to swell she was left in a permanent vegetative state ever since, doctors said they found traces of .oxycodone and cocaine in her bloodstream and might not wake up again.
Danielle’s mother Cheryl is suing the Florida Highway Patrol..
‘Tell me that’s not excessive force. I’m not saying she was an angel, but she didn’t deserve that. He couldn’t reach out and grab her? He was an arm’s length away. My daughter is dead because of this. She won’t come back.’
Other experts back her up saying that is was an inappropriate police tactic, but when the Trooper was questioned if he would he had the chance to do things over, would he have done it differently, the answer was NO, Daniel Cole was clear or any wrongdoing charges this week.
Danielle was arrested on charges of grand theft on June, 2010 she was released after paying a $2.00 bond, Burglary on March 2011, burglary on April, 2011 and Motor vehicle theft last May
