Caught on Video: 4 Court Marshals Struggle to Control 1 Enraged Handcuffed Woman Sentenced to Jail

It took four marshals to restrain an angry woman sentenced to jail in a Nevada kidnapping and child endangerment case this week.

Although apparently handcuffed by a marshal immediately after sentence was pronounced in the Clark County case, Latasha Williams pulls deputies back and forth in a video clip of the incident, shouting “Let me go!” and saying she has children and responsibilities at home. At one point she catapults her legs into the air as marshals are holding her arms and puts her legs around a marshal’s neck, according to a Scripps Media article posted on WEWS Newsnet5 that includes a link to the video.

One of the marshals suffered minor injuries.
