STOCKTON- Video has emerged of an elderly man being tased and arrested on May 28th. The video begins with David Guidry filming police who appeared to be gathering evidence for an accident on El Dorado St. As he was standing on a side median the officers can been seen taking notice of him and telling him to get off the median. He complies while making a comment about them giving “directives”. As he argues from across the street with an officer, one identified as Jeremiah Skaggs crosses the street to tell him he’s being ticketed, yet has no ticket book out. Skaggs then immediately grabs him and the camera appears to fall as it loses focus on the officer. The electric buzzing can be heard as Guidry screams in agony. According to he was also beaten with a club and he says Skaggs went through his phone attempting to delete the video not realizing it was a live feed on YouTube.
