A lawsuit has been launched against the sheriff’s office in Marin County, Calif., over an episode in which deputies barged uninvited into a 64-year-old man’s home and shot him three times with a Taser, screaming “stop resisting” while the incapacitated victim writhed in pain on the floor.
The sheriff’s version of the episode was that watching “selected” video segments of the events may mislead people.
The incident was reported by KGO-TV in San Francisco, which posted a video:
The episode developed late in June when Peter McFarland, a consultant, returned home one night from a charity fundraiser and fell on his front steps, injuring his knee. Paramedics were called to treat his injury.
Then as the paramedics departed, McFarland reported, two deputies barged in.
“All of a sudden they just showed up, came in here like there was a fire,” he said.
