Caught On Tape: Cops Use Taser Gun On Man Trying To Get Home

Local 10 News | August 17 2004

Officers in hurricane-ravaged Fort Myers used a Taser gun on a man allegedly trying to get by a police barrier to get home, and it was caught on tape.

A crowd formed around the scene and voices can be heard yelling, "Leave him alone," "That is so wrong," and "Come on man, he's frustrated."

The man had three children in the car with him. Many in the crowd felt for the man who hasn't seen his home in days.

Many of the police officers are in the same situation.

It's not known exactly what led up to police using the Taser gun. You can take a look at the video to the right to see how things ended.

There are a number of police agencies offering assistance in the Fort Myers area. It's not clear from the tape which police department was involved.
