ARGENTINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Police officers submitted to lightning beam force Wednesday to test out Tasers they will soon be using to settle down rowdy suspects.
The officers took a six-hour course to be certified on the Tasers, which will be implemented by the end of the year. It wasn't mandatory for the officers to be hit with the 50,000-volt electrical blast, although all township officers voluntarily submitted to the pain.
