Flint Police: Go Ahead And Taze Me, Bro

Posted: Updated:

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Members of the Flint Police Department including the chief got a big shock during stun gun training.

Reportedly laughter filled the department's roll call room Tuesday as officers took turns getting jolted.

Officers begin carrying the weapons starting this week. Chief James Tolbert says the move will help protect officers and anyone resisting an officer because it will cut down on physical contact. He was first in line Tuesday during the training to get a shock.

Tolbert described the electric pulsing as being like a pounding, making it almost impossible to move. He says once the 5-second shock was over he could move. Tolbert says the department has policy set for stun gun use - and now he knows what it feels like to get zapped.
