Florida Cops Tazed Teen Who Called Them For Help
He was also arrested and taken to jail
19-year old Corey Dean Austin of Jacksonville might be changing his ringtone to NWA's "Fuck The Police" after this.
He called 911 to report a battery in progress at his home. Three officers responded to the call and arrived.
Austin's home is behind a gate, so he figured it would be a good idea to meet the officers outside to lead them. To his surprise, when he hopped the fence to get their attention, one of the officers pulled out his tazer and hit him with it for five seconds.
"The suspect's actions were aggressive in nature, as I believe the suspect was attempted [sic] to fight me and other officers," one of the officers, K.M. Sines, wrote in the report.
While getting handcuffed Austin told the officers that he was the one who called.
Adding insult to injury, Austin was also arrested and charged with resisting an officer without violence. Austin was released from jail on Wednesday evening, adjudication of guilt was withheld.
