KY3 News reported:


"A teenager from Branson who was hit with an electric stun gun 19 times by police has recovered enough to do an interview with a reporter."

"Ozark police found Mace Hutchinson on July 19 underneath the Highway F overpass over U.S. 65. Mace’s family says he broke his back in a fall off the bridge. When he wouldn't move, police repeatedly used an electric stun gun on him."

"Mace says he doesn't remember much about that night and there are still several unanswered questions about how Mace ended up under the bridge. But what he is able to say is he believes there was no good reason why anyone in his situation would be stunned 19 times. He hopes the police officers are held accountable."

"'There's no way that they had to Tase me that many times,' he said."
