Man uses baby as taser shield

January 5th, 2010 by

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (myfoxorlando)- A man tried to use a baby as a shield against a police taser.

After receiving a tip that the driver was armed, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office officials stopped a car driven by Jorge Garcia early New Year’s Day.

Garcia, along with others who had been partying nearby earlier in the evening, ended up stopping on Lucerne Drive and Amigos Road in DeBary. Investigators say the group was acting rowdy, cursing and yelling and when officials tried to arrest Garcia, they say he grabbed the baby from inside one of the cars and held it up like a shield to avoid being tased himself.

Witnesses said he screamed at law enforcement to tase the baby.

The baby was safely removed but Garcia continued to resisting and was eventually tased. Garcia’s wife Tangeca was also arrested for resisting arrest. A third man was also arrested for not complying with officers.

    Tased? Why can’t we go back to the old days when pieces of **** like this would have been beaten into a bloody paste?

    Dude, you have some classy people in Florida. ;) I think idiots like this need not be taken to jail but sent to your studio so you can shock their balls. Seems like a fitting punishment if you ask me.
