NAPLES, Fla. — A Collier County deputy was reprimanded after shocking a colleague with a TASER in an incident meant to be a joke.

The December scene was caught on tape at the Collier County jail. A female deputy was seen showing a message on her iPod to a male deputy (whose name P1 has chosen to withhold), who followed the woman and shocked her on the behind with his TASER.

The deputy told investigators it was "a spur of the moment thing" and acknowledged the behavior was improper.

He was given a reprimand and final warning after an internal investigation
