ROCKLAND, Maine — Knox County Administrator Andrew Hart has released documents concerning the discipline meted out to Knox County sheriff's deputies for their participation in a bachelor party on Labor Day Weekend a year ago.

Altogether five deputies have received reprimands for their role in an incident in which then-Deputy Thomas Welch, now a trooper with the Maine State Police, was shocked with a Taser, hog-tied and paraded around downtown Camden in the back of a pickup.
