A police department in Florida on Monday released video showing the arrest of a 93-year-old woman after she refused to leave a residence after being evicted for not paying her rent.

Juanita Fitzgerald was evicted after she reportedly fell behind on rent payments at the National Church Residences’ Franklin House, a senior living community in Eustis, Fla. She was accused Wednesday of refusing to leave her unit, and spent two nights in jail for trespassing.

Bodycam footage from the arrest shows her screaming and sliding to the ground in an apparent attempt to avoid being taken away. Fitzgerald repeatedly screams, and exclaims: "Ow, God, you're hurting me! Ow! Oww!"

A police report said Fitzgerald told officers, "Unless you carry me out of here, I'm not going anywhere."

Fitzgerald was transported to jail without handcuffs because of her age, according to the police report.
