City Investigating City Police Use of Taser on Pregnant Woman


The City of Springfield is investigating an incident that led a Springfield police officer using a taser on a pregnant woman over the weekend.  A viral video posted on YouTube (caution: graphic language) shows the incident right as a police officer approached a woman with a stun gun.  The officer then forcibly throws the woman to the ground using his taser.  The woman is clearly heard in the video saying she's pregnant.  

 

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says he's grateful everyone is safe and not injured, but currently the mayor says all indication is that proper procedures were followed.  

 

The officer that used the taser is still on duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
