PENSACOLA, Fla. - Authorities say deputies responding to a call about a Pensacola liquor store robbery inadvertently Tasered an undercover state agent.
Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco worker Ira McQueen was trying to see if the clerk would sell alcohol to a minor.
The mixup on Tuesday started when a customer saw the clerk's arms raised and saw McQueen with a gun, and thought the store was being robbed. When Escambia County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, McQueen didn't comply with demands and yelling between both sides ensued. Deputies Tasered him and released a sheriff's dog. McQueen was briefly hospitalized for injuries.
Sheriff's spokesman Glenn Austin says it appears McQueen was trying to tell deputies he was a state agent.
The state agency is reviewing what happened.
