WAUKESHA, Wis. – A Wisconsin man is feeling the heat after police say he stole a Taser from police officers assisting him and later posted a video on YouTube of himself and his father using the device, the Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday.
Police said the unidentified 22-year-old was keeping warm in the squad car after his own vehicle became stuck in a ditch on New Year’s Day, the Journal Sentinel reported.
YouTube has since removed the video, which showed the father and son duo taking turns firing it.
As police assisted passengers from the man’s car, he allegedly reached under a cage and stole the Taser off the seat, police said.
Authorities searched the man’s home two days later and recovered the Taser after discovering the YouTube video. They also confiscated a camera and computer equipment, the Sentinel reported.
