If they hadn't handcuffed her, what would the other options be? Use a Straight-jacket? Zip-tie her hands? Hold her until she settled down?
Assuming that she did settle down when the cops showed up, and stopped acting like that, I don't think the police should have done anything.
But assuming that she continued throwing a fit when the cops came, I think they were well within their right to put her in handcuffs and take her to the station. She was physically harming other people, and damaging property. It was probably the safest option to handcuff her. Plus, like Michelle said, if they had tried to stop her by touching her- everyone would have issues with that.
It's almost a lose-lose situation for the cops.
