A man tasered by Austin police last year is now suing the officer and the city.
O'Conner clocked Snelling's Hyundai Accent going five miles over the speed limit.
He asked for some ID and insurance information, and 45 seconds later, Snelling was pulled from his car and shot with a Taser. Snelling claims he did nothing wrong when he got out of the car and O'Connor used excessive force when he didn't have to.
The lawsuit, filed on Dec. 7, claims assault and battery, false arrest and false imprisonment for charges the officer levied on Snelling. Damages include medical expenses, pain and anguish and lost wages.
"I was a victim of something I couldn't believe, that an officer would go to that extent and that aggressiveness. He did," Snelling said. More HERE
