Police used a Taser gun on a man suffering an epileptic fit 

By Daily Express Reporter

POLICE used a Taser gun on a man suffering an epileptic fit, it emerged yesterday. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is to probe how officers dealt with him.

The 40-year-old collapsed at a gym but paramedics asked for police back-up after he bit and punched them. An officer discharged a 50,000-volt Taser into the man, who was also restrained.

After more than two weeks in hospital, he alleged officers were negligent and used excessive and unnecessary force in the incident at the gym in Whalley Range in November. The matter was referred by Greater Manchester Police to the IPCC.

IPCC Commissioner Ms Naseem Malik said: “This man suffered an epileptic seizure and it is clear paramedics were struggling to treat him due to the violence of that seizure. Our investigation will be thorough and examine the appropriateness of officers’ actions.”
