Deputy Shows Up At Wrong Address, Uses Taser Gun On Marine

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A Marine reservist who just returned from overseas was shocked with a Taser gun by a deputy who went to the wrong address in response to a domestic disturbance call.

On March 7, Leon County deputies went to Demar Jackson's apartment instead of the correct one next door.

Jackson says he tried to tell Deputy John Daly he was at the wrong apartment, but Daly told him three times to turn around. When he did not turn around, Jackson said Daly shocked him in his bare chest and abdomen with 50,000 watts of electricity as Jackson's wife and 3-year-old son watched.
