    Officer who tasered woman unruly, intoxicated woman in his custody, is fired

    A Sheffield Village police office was fired for using his Taser gun on a woman in custody, NewsChannel5 reported.
    A security camera in the police booking room caught the incident on video.
    Officer Edward Long shocked an allegedly intoxicated 32-year-old Kristina Fretter after Long said she was being unruly.
    Fretter was taken to the hospital. She was treated and released.
    Officials said this was not the first time Long had been involved in an incident. He already served one suspension, was facing another, and has been involved in three accidents with his police car.
    Long had been the police force for two years.

    Sounds like the taser was the least of his problems

    And yet he is still out in public?
    He he was already facing one suspension, he should at the least been on the rubber gun squad, without police powers.
    And to think he was only on the job for two years. Sounds like someone is wrapped way too tight.
    Funny, she was being unruly.. she's drunk! Drunks usually fight or sleep!!

    Normally an officer's first 18 months is a probation period. How the heck did he get through that without getting fired?

    All that in just 2 years? I think they should file criminal charges against him.
