Taser lawsuit against the city of Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD)- A jury has been seated and the trial has begun in a taser lawsuit against the city of Lubbock.

The suit stems from a traffic stop in July of 2006. Officer Marsh Blackmore says L. J. Mc Callan ignored the commands to get on the ground, so he used minimal force, tasing him multiple times.

Mc Callan disagrees, stating the officer used excessive force. He also claims the officer was negligent.

According to an affidavit, Backmore left the electric barbs attached to Mc Callan's chest for nearly twenty minutes until another officer arrived and pulled out the barbs.

Blackmore claims the suit was only brought to embarrass or harass him.

A judge found there wasn't enough evidence to prove this.

NewsChannel 11 has a crew in the courtroom and will have the latest developments on the news at 5, 6, and 10.
