Cake doesn’t cut it for Tased woman

Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - NATION -

A Florida’s woman’s law­suit says a deputy shot her with a stun gun, then apol­o­gized with a cake that said, “Sorry I Tased You” in blue frost­ing.

The cake didn’t cut it for Stephanie By­ron. She sued for­mer Es­cam­bia County sher­iff’s deputy Michael Wohlers in May.

On Mon­day, the county’s Crim­i­nal Jus­tice Stan­dards and Train­ing Com­mis­sion an­nounced it had re­viewed the case and placed Wohlers on a one-year pro­ba­tion­ary pe­riod from serv­ing at any law en­force­ment agency in Florida.

The law­suit, filed in fed­eral court in Pensacola, al­leges Wohlers vi­o­lated By­ron’s civil rights, com­mit­ted bat­tery against her and caused her hard­ships, in­clud­ing phys­i­cal in­juries, mone­tary loss, med­i­cal ex­penses, hu­mil­i­a­tion and men­tal an­guish.
