HOUSTON - Things got out of hand quickly at a house party in Magnolia a couple months ago when an officer shocked a man with a Taser. It was all caught on a dashboard camera and now the man who was shocked has hired a lawyer.
The man says he believes police used excessive force, Tasing him in front of his family. Police say the man threatened them with a beer bottle and didn't obey their commands.
"Get on the ground now! Get on the ground! Get on the ground!" a Magnolia police officer could be heard saying before Tasing the man.
