Police: Woman, 80, Punches Cop, Throws Handcuffs
TAVARES, Fla. -- An 80-year-old woman went down swinging when a police officer tried to arrest her.
A Tavares police officer pulled the woman over at the intersection of U.S. Highway 441 and Huffstetler Drive for an improper lane change.
Authorities said Thalia Logas refused to sign a ticket and punched the officer in the stomach and chest several times when he tried to place her under arrest.
The officer called for back up and a Lake County Sheriff's deputy arrived.
The two officers said they finally got the handcuffs on her, and she managed to wiggle out of them and threw them out the window of the police car.
"Obviously we want to make sure we handle somebody of that age with care," Jody Maltzman of the Tavares Police Department said.
"If it was my mom, I'd be wanting to have it out with that policeman," Tavares resident Ralph Smith said.
Logas was out of jail on bond Friday morning.

Dey stop buldin' after dat. 9 So teh towerz wuz calld Babel cuz Ceiling Cat made teh men babbul ther befor movin' dem.

12 Arpachshad only waeted 35 yrz before he made babeez, and was teh dad ov Shelah. 13 Tehn Arphaxad lived OMG ANOTHER 403 YRZ and madez more babeez.
14 Shelah only waeted 30 yrz before he goed PENIS GOES WHARE?!, and was teh dad ov Eber. 15 Tehn Shelah lived 403 more yrz also and madez more babeez 'cuz he dint want hiz dad to show him up.
16 Eber waeted 34 yrz to has babeez, and was teh dad o teh Peleg. 17 Tehn Eber lived 430 more yrz and madez more babeez jus to show hiz dad and grampz whoz teh boss.
18 Peleg took afta grampa Shelah an maed babeez at 30 yrz old, and was teh dad ov Reu 19 But Peleg only lasted 209 more yrz, tho he maeded more babeez.
20 Reu went an did it at 32, and was teh dad ov Serug. 21 Reu liveded only 207 yrz longer, tho he too maeded more babeez.

24 Nahor beet his daddies past and maed babeez at 29, and was teh dad ov Terah. 25 Nahor also only liveded to 119, but he too maeded other babeez.
26 Terah maeded teh babeez Abram, Nahor, and Haran by teh tiem he was 70.
Teh Stry of Terah - Dun Wury, Iz Short
27 So herez what Terah been doed. Liek wuz sed, Terah maeded teh babeez Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

 So, about Abraham
1 So what did Abraham finded out about dis?2 If he had gotted rid of hiz Invisible Errors by sumthin he did, dat wuz sumthin to brag about. Not to Ceiling Cat tho.3 What duz teh Bible say? "Abraham beleevdid Ceiling Cat, an Ceiling Cat gived him credit for it."
4 When u work, u getz paid. Datz not a gift, itz what u iz owed.5 But if sum d00d duzint work but jus trustz Ceiling Cat, he getz credit for beleevin.6 Liek David says:7 "U getz cheezburgr
if Ceiling Cat forgivz u for doin rong,
if ur Invisible Errorz iz taekn caer of.
8 U getz cheezburgr
if Ceiling Cat desiedz to ingor ur Invisible Errorz."
9 Duz uncircmsiezded peeplz get cheezburgr, or just circumsieded peeplz? We sed dat Ceiling Cat gived Abraham credit for beleevin.10 But when did dat happn? Wuz it aftr hiz forskin wuz cuttid off, or bfor? Bfor LOL!11 Havin hiz forskin cuttid off wuz a simbl of hiz faith. Dat meenz he iz teh daddi of evribodi who bleevz an stil haz a forskin.12 An also teh daddi of teh peepl who duzint haz a forskin an bleev what he bleevd whiel he stil had hiz. k?
13 Ceiling Cat tolded Abrahm an hiz kittnz dat dey wud run teh wrld bcz beleevn maeded dem good.14 Bcz if teh popo on ur side jus bcz thay liek ur parintz, den beleevn equalz zeero cookies, so Ceiling Cat's resipe iz jus dum,15 cuz teh lawz iz cookie taek awai. N whre theyre iz no popo, they iz no cookie taek away.
16 K so resipe iz in inbox if u beleev adn all Abrahmz kittenz gets it 4 free, evn if you popo or Abraham kat. Bcz Abraham iz evry1z dad kat.17 It wuz wroted: "I haz maed you dad kat of mani breedz." He iz owr dad kat, adn teh Ceiling Cat iz lookin bcz Abruham beleevd in Ceiling Cat—teh kat thet raizes ded kats frm kat cmetery adn sayz "Thatz a dog!" whne itz rly a kat.
18 So it wuz a logn shot, but Abhram beleevd, adn so he wuz dad kat of mani breedz, jus liek soem1 saed 2 him, "Ur kittenz gonna be leik that."19 Adn he stil beleevd, evne tho hiz boddy culdnt scampr ne more—bcz he wuz 21 yrs old (thatz leik 100 human yrs!)—plus bcz Sarahz kitty-maeker didnt scamper too.20 Y, he ddnt stop beleevn, he jus bleevd moer, adn he siad good thignz abuot teh Ceiling Cat,21 bcz he thouhgt teh Ceiling Cat haz big pawz adn culd do whut he saed.22 Adn thatz y "he got tripll wrd score in hiz inbox."23 Teh wrds "in hiz inbox" was wroted not jus fr him,24 dey wuz rittn for us too. Ceiling Cat wil giv us credit for bleevin in him. He maeded Jesus com bak from teh dead.25 Jesus dieded for our Invisible Errorz an comd bak to lief to maek thingz bettr.
