Cops use Taser on man for trying to put out fire in his house11/15/2012
A man in Florida who was trying to prevent a house fire from spreading to his own home ended up on the business end of a police Taser by for refusing to put down a garden hose. Daniel Jensen told a local news station that he awoke from a nap to find his neighbor's house in flames. Afraid for his own home and family's safety, he began using a garden hose in an attempt to put the fire out. When police arrived, Jensen said they told him to stop and "that's what insurance is for." When Jensen refused their order to put down the hose, they allegedly used a Taser on him. Police claimed they could have charged Jensen with obstruction, but he's planning to sue, saying the cops went too far. [Source]
