A New Mexico officer TASERed a 10-year-old boy after he refused to wash his patrol car at a school career fair, claims a lawsuit from the boy's legal guardian.

Officer Chris Webb, of the New Mexico Department of Public Safety and Motor Transportation, allegedly TASERed the boy during a May 4 presentation to students at New Mexico Intermediate School in Tularosa.

Officer Webb asked the students who wanted to wash his patrol unit. Several students volunteered and one student, R.D., said he didn't want to clean the car. Officer Webb pointed the TASER at R.D. and said, "Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police."

He then shot two barbs into the chest of the boy, who blacked out, reports Courthouse News.
