Video Shows Arrest of 93-Year-Old Florida Woman

Raw video shows how cops treated a 93-year-old woman with a walker after she reportedly refused to pay rent

After spending two nights in the Lake County Jail on a trespassing charge filed when she refused to leave her apartment during an eviction, Juanita Fitzgerald was glad to spend her 94th birthday somewhere else.

Authorities said the woman did not have to post bail but must appear in court on December 27.

Fitzgerald was evicted from the National Church Residences' Franklin House senior living facility in Eustis, Florida, after falling three months behind on her rent, News 6 reported.

Ms Fitzgerald was spared having to spend her 94th birthday behind bars after a judge handed her over to a caregiver on Thursday.

Officers did escort her out safely without handcuffs but a WKMG reporter interviewed her at the jail said she observed bruises on her arms and handcuffs around her wrists. "Not one", said Fitzgerald.

Another officer can be heard saying "don't scratch me" as him and his colleagues continue their efforts to get her into a patrol vehicle.

Franklin House staff offered to help her move, according to the police report, but Fitzgerald refused. She remained defiant even after officer arrived, according to a police report.

The affidavit states officers were able to safely escort her out of the building into the rear of a patrol auto.

"Due to Juanita's age, it was deemed necessary to transport her without handcuffs to reduce risk of injury", the report read.

"This is extremely rare", said Twinem, who said National Church Residences runs 340 properties.

The spokeswoman for the Franklin House called the incident "extremely rare", adding "we try to find places for people".

"I don't have anybody". She also allegedly slipped out of her wheelchair while being escorted off the premises by Eustis police.

She said she couldn't understand why she was being evicted, but court records show she owed rent and would not pay.

She also refused assistance from the Department of Children and Families, The Homeless Coalition, Department of Elder Affairs and eight other agencies, officers said. "They wouldn't treat a murderer like they treated me". I don't need no help. "I've got all the help I need", Fitzgerald said, reportedly pointing to the sky.
