As noted in this article, this all started when Micah Washington, 24, was changing a flat tire with some others. Supposedly, Elmore- a cop- stopped to ask him what was going on. She also asked for ID. When Washington used his phone to start recording Elmore, she used a stun gun on him in which he fell to the ground and was subsequently handcuffed.
As he stands up and leans on the front of the car, Elmore continues to hold the stun gun to his back as she rifles through his pockets and belongings. “I ain’t doing shit, bro. I got a gun right there,” says Washington. Elmore can be seen smiling and laughing as she takes the gun and then uses the stun gun directly into his back. Washington can be heard screaming as she tells him to “shut the (expletive) up,” as noted here.
