Watch a Taser Incident
The Aug. 6, 2004 incident began as a normal traffic stop but took an ominous turn when the driver refused to get out of her SUV. It ended with a Boynton Beach Police officer hitting the 22-year-old woman twice with his Taser during her arrest.
Sgt. Sedrick Aiken, a training officer in the Boynton Beach Police Department, narrates the traffic stop, including the moment Officer Rich McNevin (in video) spots Victoria Goodwin’s speeding Isuzu Rodeo and when he twice hits her with 50,000 volts with a Taser. Post reporter Dani Davies interviewed Aiken.
According to Aiken, McNevin correctly used the stun gun to subdue the driver instead of:
- using his baton
- physically forcing driver out of SUV
- using pepper spray
- getting in SUV to handcuff driver
