Ark. cop who used TASER on girl suspended for not having camera

The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arkansas police officer who used a stun gun on an unruly 10-year-old girl has been suspended - not for using the TASER but for not having a video camera attached when he used it.

Ozark Mayor Vernon McDaniel says officer Dustin Bradshaw was suspended Wednesday for seven days with pay. McDaniel says the suspension is for not following department procedures because Bradshaw didn't have the camera on.

McDaniel wants Arkansas State Police or the FBI to investigate whether the use of the TASER was proper. The girl wasn't injured and is now at a youth shelter.

Police were called to the girl's home Nov. 11 after her mother couldn't get her to take a shower. Bradshaw says the mother gave him permission to use his stun gun.

Bradshaw's report says the girl was "violently kicking and verbally combative" so he delivered "a very brief drive stun to her back."
