A Mid-City man is under arrest for allegedly tasing a New Orleans police officer.
It happened at an upscale Mid-City apartment complex earlier this week.
"Officer Brittany Marigny responded to a 'domestic disturbance' call at an apartment in the 3100 block of Tulane Avenue just after 10pm last Monday," reads a statement from NOPD. "The complainant at the address was trying to get back into an apartment because she said her boyfriend, 25-year-old Brandon Bernard, had locked her out after the two had an argument. "
Bernard eventually allowed Officer Marigny and his girlfriend into the apartment, and then he left. When he returned minutes later, Bernard walked into the apartment, past Officer Marigny and his girlfriend and briefly went into another room before rejoining the two women.
"At this time, he had one hand behind his back," reads the NOPD statement. "The officer ordered him to show both of his hands. He refused, and instead pulled a Taser from behind his back.
"The officer fought off Bernard's advances, but Bernard eventually did manage to use the device on the officer's arm," the statement continues. "The altercation left the officer's shirt torn, and there were some burn marks near the area where the Taser was used. After attacking the officer, Bernard took off. Officer Marigny was taken to a nearby hospital to get checked out, and was released a short time later."
A warrant was issued for Bernard, and he turned himself in to police at 10:30 Thursday morning. He now cases charges of aggravated battery and battery on a police officer.
