Prince William County Police responded to a noise complaint at a child’s baptism party. By the time they left, a grandfather and a pregnant woman had been Tasered.
On Tuesday night, a Manassas family said cops went too far. The 55-year-old homeowner is a church family counselor and a bible study teacher. He says he was hosting a party for his new godchild.
However, he and the pregnant mother of the baptized boys face serious charges. Relatives are charging police used excessive force just to quiet down the backyard party.

Trump said coronavirus won’t spread — his scientists said the opposite right in front of him: Congresswoman
Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL) blasted President Donald Trump after his press conference Wednesday because he contradicted his own scientists on the coronavirus.
During an MSNBC discussion after the Q&A, the Congresswoman explained that it only confuses Americans more.
"He's not doing very well on the coronavirus," she said. "Because the test of leadership is not talking about something you know very little about and he just confused the American people about whether this virus is going to spread. All the scientists said it is going to spread and the president gave the opposite impression. And presidents have to know that when they're in a situation like this with complicated science, they put the scientists, physicians in front of them, preferably, by the way, in white coats, and let them reassure the American people."
Trump says that the financial markets dropped because of Democrats — not coronavirus
The U.S. stock market dropped over 2,000 points this week, but President Donald Trump said that it's more about Democrats than the coronavirus.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized Trump for the way he has handled the crisis.
"I think Speaker Pelosi is incompetent," Trump said in response to the question about her. "She lost the Congress once. I think she's going to lose it again. She lifted my poll numbers up ten points. I never thought I would see that so quickly and so easily. I'm leading everybody. We're doing great. I don't want to do it that way. It's almost unfair if you think about it. But I think she's incompetent and I think she's not thinking about the country. Instead of making a statement like that where I've been beating her routinely at everything, instead of making a statement like that, she should be saying we have to work together because we have a big problem potentially and maybe it's going to be a very little problem."
Here’s why Mike Pence is the worst person to put in charge of the coronavirus task force
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that he was putting Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the task force to combat the coronavirus pandemic, touting him as a former governor experienced with health care.
In reality, though, Pence's record on health care policy is extremely checkered — and his fitness to lead up such a task force is questionable.
When Pence was governor of Indiana, he oversaw an entirely preventable AIDS disaster in Scott County. Pence dragged his feet on implementing a recommended needle exchange program, out of a religiously motivated belief that doing so would make him a party to intravenous drug use — even though studies show clean-needle programs do not increase drug use. By the time Pence finally relented and let the program go forward, over 200 people had contracted HIV – in a county of less than 24,000 people.
