Teen who says she was injured by Mountie stun gun sues RCMP in Manitoba

July 13, 2009

WINNIPEG — A Selkirk, Man., woman who says RCMP repeatedly zapped her with a Taser is suing the Mounties.

The woman, who was 16-years-old at the time, says she and her friends were pulled over by police looking for a stolen car in 2007 and brought to the Selkirk detachment.

In her statement of claim, the woman says she was put in a cell and repeatedly Tasered by male police officers who taunted her.

The woman is seeking unspecified damages, alleging that the police action was unjustified and has left her with permanent scars on her legs and an inability to go to work or school.

The statement of claim contains allegations that have not been proven in court.

The RCMP has not yet filed a statement of defence.
