[VIDEO] Zephyrhills FL. Police Officer Tases Man with Hands Up

Zephyrhills, Fl— A police officer who had been with the Zephyrhill police department for 10 years was fired on Thursday following an internal investigation.  The investigation revealed that Officer Tim Claussen used excessive force when he tased a man who wasn’t physically resisting.

The incident happened on Sept. 9, in which he was investigating a misdemeanor retail theft.  The next day, a supervisor found the confrontation when he was reviewing reports.  Clausen was placed on administrative leave on the Sept. 11, and an investigation followed.  Sgt. Reginald Roberts found that Clausen’s use of force was “excessive and unjustified”.

Video taken from a camera on Claussen’s Taser “clearly shows the subject displaying no active physical resistance” toward the officer, Zephyrhills police said.

The suspect, Lester Brown, 42, was arrested and charged with resisting arrest.

“It’s transparent that this police officer was dead wrong and violated every right this gentleman had in his own home,” says attorney Barry Cohen.

Cohen says it is only because of the video footage that officer Claussen is in hot water, instead of Brown.
