COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. – Police officers are investigating a bizarre crime spree that started after a man reportedly got mad over a Wii game.Witnesses told police a man went after several people in the Meadows Mobile Home Park with a bat, bit his mother on the ankle, intentionally rammed several cars, and hit a pedestrian and a tree.

When the victims followed the driver, after a short distance he stopped, got out of his car and allegedly used a BB gun to break out the rear window of a vehicle, according to the police report.

That guy is just straight NUTS.  From the picture in the linked article, looks like the police might have drove his face into the ground. No doubt he was probably fighting them even after he got tasered.

I wonder if he shot at the vehicle to break the window, or he he used the BB gun itself to smash the window? I haven’t shot my BB gun in a long time, but I don’t remember it being that powerful.  I suppose BB gun technology possibly has come a long way.

A sheriff’s deputy in Lake County, Colo., has been placed on one week of unpaid leave after reportedly using a Taser gun on 30 students at a Lake County High School career fair Thursday.

While the Taser is used by officers to aid in the arrest process, Holte said, its effects are not severe. “It’s similar to being stung twice by a bee,” he said.

However, one of the students “tased” by Ortega was taken to the hospital and treated for welts on the skin.

Similar to being stung by a bee?! I haven’t been tasered myself, but I’ve seen plenty demonstrations of it and it looks far more painful than being stung by a bee.  Last time I checked, bee stings couldn’t take down a 250 lb. physically fit young adult.

The fact that one student had to go to the hospital to be treated for welts isn’t good either.

Have any of you guys ever been shot with a taser?
