There's a right way to behave when pulled over by the police, and about a million wrong ways to act. We aren't positive, but we're pretty sure that attempting to stab an officer with your car keys falls into the latter category. Yet that's exactly what 74-year-old Elizabeth Millonig tried to do after a pair of Flagler County, Florida deputies pulled her over for speeding. According to WESH-NBC, the ordeal started when Millonig was stopped earlier in the day. After shouted at the apprehending officers, Millonig simply drove away while they were running her plates from their cruiser. From there, the woman was stopped by a second officer, but pulled away from that encounter as well.
When finally stopped a third time, one deputy reached into the vehicle to prevent Millonig from fleeing again. At that point, the elderly driver began hitting the officer and screaming, and if you can believe it, things went downhill from there. After being asked to leave her vehicle, Millonig attempted to kick one deputy in the groin while being handcuffed. It's unclear when the car-keys incident occurred during all of this, but the report says that after being placed in the back of a police vehicle, the elderly woman continued to kick the vehicle's doors and safety divider.

Millonig was initially stopped for driving 40 mph in a 30 mph zone. She was later released on $7,500 bond.

      It looks like we start to have sissies for policemen instead of real men. Stabbed by elderly women with the keys! Wow! Ordeal started then... Poor sissies. And the women charges with assault released on bond. Better story end to all of this would be that deputy (deputies) killed the woman because he (they) became afraid of their own life. The story would probably ended this way if instead of the elderly woman key "attacker" was a young man, preferably black. I am not sure who serves and protects us, the public, but it seems that there a lot of jerks out there.

      I've lived long enough and seen enough video to not believe either side's story right out of the gate. This does kind of remind me of a (70s) school thing where you hold your finger and thumb about an inch apart and ask your friend if they are afraid of man this small? I have to wonder why we employ cops that are afraid of a woman that's 74 with a car key. Cynical and stupid, I know.

        Liken her to a small dog. She may not cause any real harm, but at some point her antics are so annoying you just want to punt her for distance. But people would get upset if they saw an old woman drop-kicked by the police, so they had to arrest her.

        I didn't read anything about them being afraid? Just doing their job removing someone that maybe shouldn't be on the road.

        On the surface I totally agree with you. But my grandfather is getting old and cannot manage to drive, but in his dementia experiences wander-lust multiple times a day. He looks for keys to the car constantly, and frequently will walk out the door and roam off if he is not being watched.

        It's possible this woman deserves sympathy. I would not immediately assume the police officers were "afraid" of the woman, but that they could be trying to use the appropriate level of caution for her own sanity. Their job is to protect and serve, and sometimes spike-stripping a 74 year-old's car isn't the best way to do that.

      She's an embarassment to the rest of us old gals who drive with integrity and caution. Some of us drive with an old man, as well.

      40 mph in a 30 mph zone? Attention cops: go catch real crooks. Geezus.
      • 4 Years Ago
      pulled over for doing 40mph in 30mph zone?
      I would've done the same thing

      This old woman is very dangerous, at 74 years old she still wild and evil, still trying to hurt the officers. Her face looks like a Satan and Demon. She's definitely belong in jail so she can't hurt other people. She's too dangerous for the safety of pubblic. Overall, women in this damn country are very dangerous, a lot more dangerous than men.

      Cops tried to rob her and all she did was say NO to robbery.

      All u cop supporters r dumb becuz cops don't care about u or ur mom. They are doing their "job" to rob you of your $$$ because their government funding is drying up becuz it's so poorly inefficiently run.

      Traffic Police = robbers.

      They have nothing to do with safety. Cops don't care about people. They are there to get the chance to shoot someone cuz they are power tripping robbers and murderers.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And yet, a policeman would STILL help you if you needed it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The cops may not care about your mom, but I do.
        Tell her to call me, I miss her.


        And while you're at it, kindly insert your head into a plastic bag.
