A police department in Virginia is under scrutiny after an officer was filmed shocking a man with a Taser for more than 40 seconds.
The suspect, Lantz Day, 36, was a passenger in a car that struck five parked cars in downtown Fredericksburg on Saturday night, Fredericksburg.com reported.
The driver of the four-door Buick fled the scene, but Day remained in the area until police caught up to him.
Cops said he was belligerent and threatened to attack anyone who called 911.
Video posted to YouTube showed Day lying on the ground next to some officers before jumping up and attempting to flee.
A cop drops him with a Taser and continues shocking him for 42 seconds.
At one point, Day screams out, “Stop it! Stop it!” but the officer doesn’t let up. The stun gun’s persistent clicking is audible in the video.
Day, of Locust Grove, was charged with misdemeanor obstruction of justice and released later on $3,500 bond, Fredericksburg.com reported.
A police spokesman told the news website investigators were looking into whether officer’s use of the Taser was excessive.
