Video Shows Deputy Use Taser on 91-Yr Old Man At Nursing Home

Minneapolis, KS - Newly-released body-camera video captures the scene from March in which a deputy with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office tased a 91-year-old man with Alzheimer's at a Minneapolis nursing home because the man wouldn't get in a car to go to the doctor.

The video shows the man repeatedly refusing to leave for his doctor's visit, batting officers' hands away when they try to help him up, and in the end, making a run for it.

That's when we see the old man tased.

Relatives say the handcuffs broke his wrist, and they additionally believe this incident weakened his heart and led to his death two months later.
