A Penn Hills, Pennsylvania high school student was Tasered last week after he brought a loaded weapon to school and waved it around the school hallways.
Just kidding, he was Tasered because he allegedly refused to stop talking on a cell phone and pushed a police officer.
According to a story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, a Penn Hills police officer did what's called a "drive stun," which involves pushing the Taser against a portion of a body, like a leg, it immobilizes that part of the body.
"The kid refused to listen," Chief Burton told the Post-Gazette. "The officer took him by the arm and said, 'You have to go to the office.' The student resisted, pushed the officer. The officer, defending himself, took out his stun gun and did a drive stun."
"NNNNGGGKKKK!" the student said.
Chief Burton said after the student had collapsed on the floor, he was still resisting, and so was cuffed by the macho, burly police officer who shocked him into submission, rather than just wrestling him to the ground.
The student said he had a headache and was dizzy, so he was taken to a local hospital.
