A Tennessee police officer was recorded during a traffic stop tasering a Black Door Dash driver who he pulled over during a traffic stop. The driver, Delane Gordon, was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of justice even though Gordon only asked to call in the officer’s supervisor, which was all recorded by Gordon.

“A Tennessee police officer fired his stun gun at a food delivery man who had begun recording his traffic stop for speeding and asked to see the officer’s supervisor, video footage shows.
The man wound up facing additional charges of resisting arrest and obstruction of justice, his attorney said.
Attorney Ryan Wheeler released the video at a news conference Friday, saying Delane Gordon began recording when the March 10 stop started to make him feel unsafe. Police in Collegedale, a city of some 11,000 people about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Chattanooga, have thus far declined to identify the officer.
Gordon is Black and the officer is white, Gordon’s legal team said.
Earlier in the week, authorities said they were investigating a March 10 traffic stop by Collegedale Police that resulted in those three charges. But they didn’t say why, and still have not released specifics or police video footage, citing the probes.”
