Hey, that’s what partners are for, right?
An Ohio police officer didn’t have the best Thanksgiving Day last week, and that’s mainly because his partner accidentally used a stun gun on him while trying to subdue a man who refused to show his identification. It all kicked off when the officers responded to a report of domestic violence. The man involved in the incident refused to show his identification, and that’s when the officers pulled the dude from the car and tossed him to the ground.
Well, the dude refused to cooperate and that’s when the stun gun came out. And well, this happened.
And Here’s One Cop Accidentally Tasing Another Cop
As you can see, one of the officers is hit with the stun gun, which causes him to fall back and hit his head on the pavement. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK. Although I don’t know if his partnership will be OK.
As far as the 22-year-old suspect, Christopher McClinton, he was arrested and charged with obstructing official business, failure to disclose personal information and resisting arrest. He ended up pleading not guilty to those charges.
If you’re going to use your taser, make sure you tase the correct person or you’re going to end up looking like a complete idiot.
