Dash cam video shows an officer accidentally tasered by a fellow officer during an arrest


A Riverside, Ohio police officer was accidentally stunned by another officer while they were making an arrest on Thanksgiving.

According to audio captured on cruiser dash cam, several people called and reported a disturbance. The officers who responded were speaking with at least two people sitting inside a vehicle, and asked one of them repeatedly for an ID.

When that man reportedly failed to provide them with one, the officers went to pull him out of the car. One officer can be seen pulling his Taser as they try to put the man to the ground to arrest him, at which point the other officer is hit.

The department has not named the officers involved, but FOX 45 has learned that the officer who was stunned was taken to the hospital to be treated for a head injury.
