Baron "Scooter" Pikes, a 21-year-old sawmill worker, had tried to run from police in Winnfield, Louisiana, when they tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant for cocaine possession.
But a coroner's report found Pikes had been handcuffed and on the ground when first hit with the Taser and might have been dead before the last two shocks from the 50,000-volt device were delivered.
He taser'd him because he wouldn't stand up fast enough. Jesus. Then he covered it up and said Pikes was high on cocaine and PCP. But drug tests came back negative.
Now to a Louisiana grand jury.
