The 91-year-old man was incapacitated immediately after the deputy from Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office tased the man in the back. The incident occurred at a nursing home in Minneapolis, Kansas, and was recorded on body camera.
Local news station KWCH obtained the newly-released video footage following open records request.
The elderly man allegedly became aggressive towards another nursing home resident and resisted attempts by law enforcement and others to lead him into a van to visit a doctor, according to KWCH.
“Relax buddy,” one deputy can be heard saying as the elderly man howls in pain following the Taser shot. After he was tased, the man was put on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.

The man’s family, which does not want to be identified, said handcuffs applied by deputies broke his wrist. They also believe the incident affected the health of his heart and contributed to his death two months later.
Can’t handle a 91 year old Alzheimer’s patient without tasering him? Maybe being a cop just isn’t for you. https://t.co/9ZCs7IOsz2

According to KWCH, the Ottawa County Sheriff said he was wary of speaking on camera before he knows the investigation into the incident is complete.
The nursing home facility has updated its policies for situations in which residents become animated, KWCH reported.
