Calgary police use Taser on man in city's northeast (aka police use torture mode)

February 17, 2009

A man is in hospital this morning after being tasered by police at a business in the city's northeast.

The man entered a car dealership around 7:30 a.m., ranting, threatening staff and refusing to leave, police say. “He was very, very agitated, saying he was the devil and that he was going to kill us all,” said a staff member.

Staff called police and tried to calm the man before help arrived a few minutes later.

The man resisted police and sat behind the wheel of a car, staff say.

Officers used a “dry stun” on the suspect, which means the taser’s probes weren’t launched.

The man was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police are investigating.
