April 13, 2010

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) – A Collier County deputy was reprimanded after shocking a colleague with a Taser in an incident meant to be a joke. The December scene was caught on tape at the Collier County jail. A female deputy was seen showing a message on her iPod to Cpl. Wilmer A. Arencibia, who followed the woman and shocked her on the behind with his Taser.

Arencibia told investigators it was “a spur of the moment thing” and acknowledged the behavior was improper.

He was given a reprimand and final warning after an internal investigation.

    Star 290, he was using the "dry stun" mode of the taser....

    Taser? More likely a "stun gun". Many of these stories never get it right.

    I think in some departments, everybody chases their coworkers around with a Taser. However, most people don't actually deploy it.

    Kind of curious what it was she showed/said to him. Did anyone else notice that she began to run before he cleared leather? Looks like she was jokingly "dogging" him about something and even expected some type of reaction from him. Doesn't remove the fact that he made a very stupid decision but may explain why the department handled it the way they did. Thinking there's more to this story.

    I agree with mpd3244. Yep! It's flirting. Back in my day he would have pulled her hair in the school yard, gotten a slap from her. All would laugh!
    I know that we can not condone this action on a professional department. The department must review the overall performance of the officer and decide on what ever action seems proper. Don't throw the baby out with the wash water"

    A reprimand? That idiot would be unemployed at most any agency that has an ounce of integrity. It is no joke to play around with weapons. What kind of agency has a command staff that would allow this idiot to stay employed? Send in the Clowns Collier County SO.

    Looks like a version of elementary school flirting to me. Back then, the boys would chase and harrass the girls, especially if you liked them. He should ask her out. lol
