Cops in Fredericksburg, VA, used a stun gun on 36-year-old Lantz Day for 42 seconds.

The incident was caught on tape by a witness and subsequently uploaded to YouTube:

At the beginning of the video, police are seen talking to a belligerent-seeming man, Lantz Day, lying on the sidewalk. Day then stands up and tries to flee the scene.

In an effort to stop him, a police officer uses a stun gun for an astounding 42 consecutive seconds. The entire time, Day can be heard screaming in pain while volts pass through his body.

Only after Day is cuffed does the officer release the stun gun trigger. “How hard was that, sir?” the officer asks Day.

The footage of the occurrence quickly went viral and Fredericksburg police immediately came under scrutiny. Now an internal investigation has been launched to determine if cops used too much force against Day.

A police report states that the incident took place after Day was involved in a car accident. He was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed into five parked cars. According to the report, the driver of the vehicle fled the scene and a belligerent Day threatened to hurt any witness who called for help. Police claim that when they arrived on the scene to question Day, he tried to run away. This is when the stun gun came into play to detain the suspect.

It is understandable that officers needed to detain Day — but using the stun gun for 42 seconds seems excessive to many.

Although Day was initially a suspect, it is easy to believe, based on the video, that he became a victim in this case.
