High School Students in IN and NC Get Tasered

Fort Wayne, IN:  Sherriff Deputies tried to serve a warrant on a student for parole violation.  

We’re told the student cooperated at first, but became combative with police officers outside the building.  He eventually was able to escape their custody.  As the student ran from police, an officer used a taser gun to try and subdue the student. 

This in an interesting tidbit.  When an officer is serving a warrant, are you in fact, ‘in custody?’

Meanwhile, in Cary, NC:  Sean Elrod, 16, is charged with assaulting a government official.  No definition of what the assault entailed.  The officer then stunned the student, and both went to the hospital for minor injuries.
