A Dallas police officer has filed a lawsuit against the company that makes Tasers called Taser International.

The stun guns are regularly used on recruits in training at many police academies.

Officer Andrew Butler alleges he suffered a fractured vertebra after he was tased during rookie training.

Butler’s lawsuit is the latest in a string of lawsuits filed against the company.

He claims “Taser” didn’t fully disclose the risks of a shot from the stun gun. 

Taser International stands behind its product, claiming it’s safer and a better option than automatic, semi-automatic weapon or revolver.
