HAVERHILL, Mass. -- Two police officers are facing charges after an off-duty fracas outside a Massachusetts home ended with one officer using a Taser on the other.
Daron Fraser lives in Raymond, N.H., and is a patrolman in Lawrence, Mass. Joshua Wallar, of Methuen, Mass., is a patrolman in Kingston, N.H.
Authorities say Fraser and his pregnant girlfriend were having a dispute late Tuesday night in Haverhill, when Wallar intervened and subdued Fraser with his department-issued Taser.
Fraser was charged with two assault counts. Wallar was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Both pleaded not guilty.
Wallar's lawyer says his client believed his intervention was justified. Fraser's lawyer says the dispute was overblown.
