Suspect Grabs Officer's Taser and Shoots Him with It
Posted on Aug 18, 2010
A Missouri man has been arrested and is facing multiple serious charges after allegedly shooting a police officer with the officer's taser last Saturday after a chase. The officer suffered second degree burns.
The suspect fled a stolen car after it caught on fire on an interstate, and managed to narrowly escape capture at least twice, and over the course of a few hours. When he was finally confronted, the 24 year-old suspect resisted arrest and tried to grab the officer's weapon. He managed to get the taser, and shot the officer's arm. Other motorists helped the officer subdue the suspect.
