TASER LAWSUIT
(2007-08-01)
(wgvu) - A TRAVERSE CITY WOMAN IS SUING THREE
NORTHERN MICHIGAN CORRECTIONS OFFICERS WHO SHE SAYS SHOCKED HER
WITH A TASER GUN WHILE SHE HAD BEEN PHYSICALLY RESTRAINED AT A
COUNTY JAIL.
ROXANNE ROUSH-DEAN SAYS IN DECEMBER 2005 SHE WAS STRAPPED INTO A
RESTRAINT CHAIR IN AN ANTRIM COUNTY JAIL CELL AND ELECTRICALLY
SHOCKED BY CORRECTIONS OFFICER KIM MURRAY.
HER FEDERAL LAWSUIT ALSO CLAIMS THAT OFFICERS BONNIE PAIGE AND
MARK KUCHAREK FAILED TO STOP THE INCIDENT.
ANTRIM COUNTY SHERIFF TERRY JOHNSON SAYS THE OFFICERS ACTED
APPROPRIATELY.
AND AN ATTORNEY REPRESENTING THE THREE OFFICERS SAYS DEAN WAS
SHOCKED ONE TIME -- BUT IT WAS IN RESPONSE TO HER VERBAL AND
PHYSICAL ATTACKS ON THE OFFICERS.
