93 Cop Tased In The Groin By Another Cop
Rio Arriba, NM - The Rio Arriba County jail officer who was shocked with a Taser by a county deputy at the jail recently was tased “in the genital area,” according to two brief accounts of the incident released by the county Friday. The incident that led to the tasing of detention officer Timothy J. Gallegos apparently started after a group of deputies arrived at the jail in Tierra Amarilla on June 3 and one was honking a car horn. The county sheriff’s office confirmed last week that Deputy Leon Gallegos is on paid leave over the tasing. Sheriff’s office Maj. Randy Sanches has called the use of the Taser “accidental” and said it took place in the sally port, a secured entrance to the jail.
