93-year-old forcibly evicted by police

Eustis FL where Fitzgerald’s nursing home is located

Eventually, the five-foot, 100-pound woman was escorted out of the building and into the rear seat of Officer David Perez's police vehicle and taken to Lake County Jail.

As officers attempted to escort her from the front lobby, Fitzgerald "intentionally slid out of her chair and onto the floor", according to the report.

Karen Twinem, with National Church Residences, which owns the Franklin House where Fitzgerald has lived since April 2011, said Fitzgerald told the staff she held back the rent because she thought she was going to die soon.

They eventually managed to get her out of the independent living facility and put her in the back of a patrol auto without handcuffs, it said.

On the bright side, Jack Wilshere , making his first Premier League start for Arsenal since May 2015, looked very impressive in the heart of midfield.

Police officers have been filmed dragging a crying and screaming 93-year-old woman to jail in shocking footage.

They tell the 5-foot-tall, 100 pound woman to relax and insist they're not putting any pressure on her. Her birthday was on Friday. Due to her age, officers transported Fitzgerald without handcuffs to reduce the risk of injury.

Fortunately Fitzgerald will not spend her 94th birthday in jail, but will stay at the residence of an acquaintance after leaving the detention center of Lake County in Florida.

However, in an interview with WKMG's Adrianna Iwasinski, Fitzgerald is seen in handcuffs and wearing an orange jumpsuit. "I paid my September rent and when she decided she was going to put me out, she wouldn't accept any rent after that". It's unclear if the woman Fitzgerald refers to is Twinem. "My family is in Tennessee and I told them not to tell my son anything that's going on", said Fitzgerald.

The authorities contacted the woman's family on several occasions to try to obtain aid including in the efforts to several agencies for people in need but Fitzgerald rejected all the assistance offered. I don't need no help. Moments later, a woman says "I want her to go in my vehicle - I would love for her to go in my auto".

"I don't have anybody".

"I'm a born-again Christian and I'm spirit-filled", she told WJAX-TV, adding that she'd prefer to return to Franklin House.

Since being released from jail, members of the community have offered support to Fitzgerald.
