Footage showing a 19-year-old with autism being tasered by police has been released by a Texas police department.
The incident occurred in the north central town of Graham on June 26, but the police body camera footage was not released until Thursday, July 12.
The video shows Michael Moore, 19, being tossed to the ground by police who then use a stun gun.
The article goes on to state the following:
The police were responding to a call from a neighbor who complained of Moore throwing rocks into their yard, according to ABC affiliate WFAA.
In the video, Moore can be heard answering the police officer’s question asking where he lives, responding by saying “right here.”
The officers performed field sobriety tests, thinking that he is possibly high on drugs, and Moore appears to become more confused. From there, Moore was pushed to the ground as deputies tried to secure him in handcuffs and then used a taser on him.
