    Wis. officer accidentally Tasers himself

    Mon Nov 12, 7:20 PM ET

    MADISON, Wis. - A police officer has been reprimanded for accidentally discharging a Taser, causing an injury — to the police officer.

    Madison police released a report Monday on the July 31 incident, without revealing the officer's name or gender. The department said the Taser accidentally discharged during a standard checkout procedure.

    According to a summary of the investigation, officers are required to make sure no air cartridges are loaded before testing the Taser gun at the start of each shift. It's the air cartridges that propel the Taser's prongs, which deliver a jolt of electricity when they strike a target.

    The officer's hand was injured, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said.

    A letter of reprimand was issued because failing to ensure the air cartridge wasn't loaded was a violation of department policy, the report said.

    :rofl: how embarrassing to shoot yourself with a taser. At least if you do it with a gun you won't be around for the ridicule.

    There is no way this guy/girls name is gonna remain a secret for long. They should have just released is and weathered the storm. Now, cuz their being secretive about it, it's only going to fuel everyone's curiosity.

    Oh and lol...what a dumbass. Prolly be a good idea to look for another job....can you imagine the harassment from fellow officers??
