Quote Of The Week.

"Ow, that hurt"

Story: Cop mistakes real gun for taser, shoots man in tree.

The man had been climbed high up a fig tree and had been there for several hours... [he] had been in the tree and talking to himself when one employee arrived at work at 7:30 a.m.

One deputy attempted to discharge a Taser at the man, but when it did not work asked another deputy to fire a Taser. Instead of grabbing the Taser, the deputy grabbed and fired the gun, Wilson said.

"He said, 'Ow, that hurt, I'm coming down, I'm coming down,"'
