Deputy suspended for using Taser to wake inmate

LARGO, Fla. (AP) - A Pinellas County detention deputy was suspended for
using the sound of his stun gun to try and wake up an inmate. According
to an internal affairs report, the deputy thought the crackling sound of his
Taser would rouse an inmate on July 27. It did not.

The inmate had fallen asleep at on the floor of the jail's intake section.
The deputy, a three-year veteran, received a 15-day suspension. His
punishment also includes a charge of misconduct for falsifying a report.

15-day suspension?? Clearly, there's more to this story. While not the wisest choice, it's not as if he applied the Taser to the inmate to wake him.
