We first brought you Lilly Washington's story in April of this year. First she was allowed to stay in her home, but now she has been kicked out, tased and arrested. Fannie Mae has even hired 24-hour security to make sure Washington stays away from the home. So how did it come to this?
When we first interviewed her, Washington had fallen behind in her payments but Bank of America agreed to work with her.
When Washington came back to Phoenix after visiting her wounded son overseas, a new lock was on her door. Washington was in danger of eviction, but now that danger is reality.
"They said, 'Yes, you have to get out of the house,'" Washington said.
She was recently ordered to pay $700 a month to Fannie Mae to stay in the home while they fought in court.
"I appealed to court of appeals because I don't have that money," Washington said.
But rather than pay what she could, Washington said she wasn't sending in any payments. So, before the judgment date of her appeal, Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies took her into custody Thursday morning. But she said they did not do so without a fight.
"They shock[ed] me with electric [over my] whole body, 20 or 30 times," Washington said. "And I don't know anything, I said, 'You don't do that because I'm cardiac, I have problems.'"
MCSO sent us the following statement:
"Under a court order, deputies went to remove Lilly Washington from the home a second time. When she refused a struggle ensued. During the altercation with our female deputy, a Taser was deployed. Because of her past behavior, the sheriff's office videotaped the incident. She was arrested, medically evaluated and booked for one count of interfering with judicial proceedings."
MCSO said that videotape isn't ready yet, but said they believe once we view it, we'll know what really happened.
Meanwhile a guard is outside the house and Washington's stuff has been put into a storage unit - which may be her new home for a while.
"I think I [will] go to storage and I [will] sleep over there [on] my sofa," she said.
Fannie Mae told CBS 5 News it can't comment on Washington's arrest but did send us the court order requiring her to pay $700 a month. As for that interfering with the judicial process charge, Washington said the judge is allowing her some time to get her paperwork together and explain her side at a later court date.
