In fall of 2005, a woman in Golden Valley was tasered during a call to 911. Her husband had been pulled over as part of highway 394 stop and was detained. She became concerned and made the 911 call. One of the officers then approached the car and tasered her in a move to disable. She was then arrested and booked. The case was sued out in Federal court and settled this week.

Initially, the case lead to a number of questions as to what happened. The city did not admit any wrongdoing with the settlement, but $200,000 was paid. Steve Lombardi, here at the Injuryboard, has been writing about these type of cases for some time now. Spend some time reading the list of other incidents with:
