Door Dash delivery driver Delane Gordon was 300 feet from his delivery destination when he was pulled over by a Collegedale police officer who accused him of speeding earlier this month.
Gordon, 28, said the officer’s tone and attitude made him fear for his safety so he asked the cop to call a supervisor. But that made the cop’s attitude worse.
“Sir, I feel uncomfortable; please get your supervisor,” Gordon told the cop as he began recording.
“I don’t give a shit what you feel like. I said get out,” responded the cop before tasering him.
The video lasts only 49 seconds and shows the cop trying to pull Gordon out of the car, then tasering him as he yells out in pain.
He ended up going to jail on charges of obstruction of justice, resisting arrest and speeding. It is not clear at this time if the Door Dash delivery was ever made.
The incident took place on March 10 and it is now “under investigation” by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Collegedale police internal affairs division, according to News Channel 9.
Ryan Wheeler, an attorney representing Gordon, said his client was scared because he had never been arrested before and believed the cop was too aggressive for a traffic stop. His next court date is April 20.
The cop whose name has not been released was wearing a body camera but police say they will not release it until after the investigation is completed – which is usually a sign that it will not make the cop look good.
