True Story as reported by BBC

Post by heavytread on 22/10/2012, 19:48

A blind man who was Tasered by a police officer in Lancashire when his white stick was mistaken for a sword is suing the force.

Colin Farmer, 62, was stunned by a policeman after reports were made of a man walking through Chorley with a samurai sword on 12 October.

Ch Supt Stuart Williams said the force "deeply regrets" the incident and an urgent investigation was under way.

Mr Farmer was taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged.

had to discharge him as the white stick meant he couldn't earth properly and they were worried he'd fried the guide dog!
