Cops Almost Blind Man With Taser To The Eye During Routine Traffic Stop
Sometimes a little patience would go a long way.
Check it out:
An Ohio man is fighting an lawsuit against police in Fayette County following an incident that almost left him blinded, as the cops tasered him directly in the eye during a routine traffic stop.
Matthew David Kelly claims that a Sheriff’s deputy and an Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper used excessive force in deploying a taser and stunning Kelly twice, causing him to lose vision in his right eye.
The lawsuit states that the Sheriff’s deputy had no probable cause, and that the State Trooper did nothing to stop the tasering incident.
Kelly was a passenger in the truck stopped by the cops, asleep at the time when the driver was pulled over and arrested for being under the influence of alcohol.
