BOCA RATON- A police Taser instructor misused the electronic stun gun when she shocked three fellow officers with the weapon, according to a department report released Wednesday.

The investigation of instructor Sgt. Shannon Wendlick began after officials received two anonymous notes saying the 13-year officer "loves to use her Taser" and had bragged about using it on another department sergeant.

Three officers said Wendlick had pressed the weapon against their arms and fired it in the "drive stun" mode with their consent during night shifts after they asked her about the effects of the weapon used in that manner.
