It's Never A Good Idea To Loudly Direct A Sheriff's Deputy To "Taser Me, Bro."
After stealing a rowboat, jumping into a lake, and fleeing naked through thick underbrush, an agitated Florida man made a strange request to a sheriff’s deputy.
“Taser me, Taser me Bro,” Darrel Lee Horne demanded as he sat in the back a police cruiser, where he had been scuffling with a friend with whom he was arrested Friday afternoon. The request by Horne, 28, echoed the famous “Don’t tase me, bro” plea by the University of Florida student who disrupted a 2007 forum featuring Senator John Kerry.
Horne was, in fact, zapped by Deputy Taylor Sierstorpff, who “gave a verbal command of ‘Taser Taser Taser’” before striking Horne in the chest with the taser probes and delivering “a single cycle,” according to a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office report.
Pictured in the above mug shot, Horne (who is nicknamed "Buck") became compliant after the tasering. Along with his friend, Horne was charged with armed burglary, grand theft, and resisting arrest. He remains locked up in the county jail.
