RALEIGH, NC (NEWS AND OBSERVER) — Ouch! A State Highway Patrol training officer horsing around at the magistrates office in the Wake County Jail last month accidentally stunned a trainee in the buttock with a Taser.
It happened in the early morning hours of Nov. 27, when the training officer pulled the trigger of his Taser without a cartridge loaded. That makes a loud popping noise, but doesn’t fire the weapon.
Unfortunately, the trainee trooper’s startled reaction was to jump backward into the Taser, which stunned him. The trainee wasn’t injured, according to a spokesman with the N.C. Department of Crime Control and Public Safety.
