St. Petersburg, Florida - There's an internal investigation at the St. Petersburg Police Department after a miscommunication during a training exercise.

Several police officers were conducting a mock arrest Wednesday night when two other officers, who were not involved in drill, heard chatter on the radio. They responded to reports of a suspicious person carrying a golf club and acting in a threatening manner.

When the officers arrived, they confronted the other officer, posing as a suspect, and tasered him. The officer wasn't seriously hurt, but did get some bumps and scratches when he fell to the ground.

Two members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were riding along at the time of the incident. The St. Petersburg Police Department calls the incident "unfortunate."
