Officer Chris Webb accused of tasering a 10-year-old boy to teach him a lesson

According to Facebook, this is a photograph of a Chris Webb who lives in Tularosa, New Mexico. We are awaiting confirmation whether this is the same Chris Webb who is a Tularosa cop accused of tasering a 10-year-old boy in May 2012.

From the story by Courthouse News Services:

A New Mexico policeman Tasered a 10-year-old child on a playground because the boy refused to clean his patrol car, the boy claims in court.

Guardian ad litem Rachel Higgins sued the New Mexico Department of Public Safety and Motor Transportation Police Officer Chris Webb on behalf of the child, in Santa Fe County Court.

Higgins claims Webb used his Taser on the boy, R.D., during a May 4 “career day” visit to Tularosa New Mexico Intermediate School.

“Defendant Webb asked the boy, R.D., in a group of boys, who would like to clean his patrol unit,” the complaint states. “A number of boys said that they would. R.D., joking, said that he did not want to clean the patrol unit.

“Defendant Webb responded by pointing his Taser at R.D. and saying, ‘Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police.’”
