BAYTOWN, Texas -- An internal investigation by the Baytown
Police Department has determined an officer did nothing wrong when he used
his Taser gun against a woman while arresting her.This is the third time
that Micah Aldred has been cleared of any wrongdoing in
the case. In January, a Harris County jury acquitted Aldred on charges of
using excessive force against Naomi Autin during a dispute
at her brother's home.
After he was acquitted, Aldred was reinstated back
into the department following five months of paid leave.
The jury's decision came after a federal ruling by the U.S.
Department of Justice that Aldred didn't violate Autin's civil rights.
She accused him of unnecessarily zapping her with his stun
gun three times in July 2003, then throwing her against a pole and leaving
her with a head gash that required stitches.
Autin contends Aldred continued to used his Taser -- a device
that produces an electrical surge -- several more times as she lay on the
Aldred, 28, said he was trying to stop Autin from
bashing a door with a brick when she turned on him.
