VIDEO: Ind. Chief Takes TASER Hit to Raise Money for Department
There was a stunning fundraiser Friday in Knightstown, Ind., where police brought out a crime-fighting tool not to catch a criminal, but to raise money for the force, WTHR TV reports.
They ended up bringing in more than $30,000 for the Knightstown Police Department as people paid to see Police Chief Danny Baker take one for the team.
"I said I'd never do this again," the chief explained about his decision to get shot with a stun gun. He's already done it twice, once in training and another time to raise $500 for police equipment a few years ago.
