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.
