OUCH! Police probe alleged TASERing of officer by another

The Eunice Police Department is conducing an internal investigation of the alleged use of a TASER by one officer on another.

Assistant Chief Brent Fruge confirmed an investigation is under way but citing officers’ rights declined to provide any details.

He did say no such incident occurred as a result of officers’ enforcement duties.

Fruge could not say whether the alleged incident was accidental or intentional.

The investigation comes on the heels of another recently concluded probe involving “horseplay”.

A claim of inappropriate action by a female officer against a male officer was eventually determined to be part of the horseplay.

The initial investigation recommended termination of the male officer, but further study reversed that finding, officials said.
