Witnesses back S.F. man's story of TASERing

By Susan Sward
San Francisco Chronicle
SAN FRANCISCO - A medical student's account of being thrown to the ground by officers in North Beach and zapped repeatedly with a stun gun was bolstered Thursday by two witnesses who said they watched as the man writhed and cried out when the electric charges hit him.

The witnesses' comments followed an article in The Chronicle that described the zapping incident Dec. 17 and three other cases in which citizens allege that Officer Jesse Serna, 41, used excessive force and in some instances made racially charged remarks denigrating them.

The man being zapped "was saying 'I'm down, I'm down' as they Tasered him,'' said Elisabeth Chaplin, 26, one of the witnesses who gave her account Thursday.
