Newly released body-camera footage shows Glendale police tasering a man eleven times, the Arizona Republic reports.
Glendale Officers Matt Schneider and Mark Lindsey are shown in the video tasering Jonny Weatcroft, 39, after a traffic stop.
“I’m not doing nothing,” the victim can be heard repeatedly saying.
The city of Glendale, Scheider, Lindsey and Officer Michael Fernandez are being sued in the U.S. District Court of Arizona for “unlawful, unnecessary, unreasonable, and excessive force, which resulted in life-altering injuries to Plaintiff Johnny Wheatcroft and his family.”
“Minutes later, Wheatcroft was handcuffed lying face down on the hot asphalt on a 108-degree day. He’d already been tased 10 times, with one officer kneeling on his back as another, Officer Matt Schneider, kicked him in the groin and pulled down his athletic shorts to tase him a final time in his testicles, according to a federal lawsuit and body camera footage obtained by ABC15,” the station reported.
