Kathryn Winkfein falls to the ground after being tasered by officer

The pictures from a camera on his car dashboard show the angry exchange between Kathryn Winkfein and the arresting officer in Austin, Texas.

She had been stopped for allegedly speeding on a notoriously dangerous section of Highway 71.

After completing the paperwork, the officer, Deputy Chris Bieze, returned to Winkfein's truck - but when she refused to sign the ticket a confrontation followed.

Next to the busy road, she was seen refusing to have handcuffs put on her by him.

He then warned her she was about to be hit with a Taser before the actual stun incident took place.

The woman fell to the ground - she was not seriously injured.
