SHAME: Mount Sterling OH police department shut down amid claims of a cover-up after an officer allegedly tasered a nine year old boy because he didn’t want to go to school. Police chief Mike McCoy was also suspended for three days and was accused of hiding the incident from city officials.
The town’s part-time officer was called to an apartment where a child was refusing to go to school, according to reports.
But during the call out, the visit became hostile and a taser was used to subdue the unnamed boy, Madison County Prosecutor Steve Pronai said. Source: Daily Mail
The police department’s computers and weapons were also seized, and state investigators have been brought in to launch an investigation.
