    Deputy uses Taser on Fayetteville high school girl


    ABC Local

    October 23, 2013

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- The mother of a 15-year-old Westover High School student is questioning whether it was necessary to use a Taser on her daughter to break up a fight.

    Debra Payne contacted ABC11 after the incident. The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office confirmed a school resource officer used the weapon after warning the 15-year-old. It said the Taser's prongs were not deployed, and just the shock was used a single time.

    But the teen's mother says her daughter was shocked three times - which she claims the officer involved confirmed. A photo of the girl's side shows red marks where the Taser was used.

    Payne said she doesn't understand how a 95-pound-girl could be a threat to a law enforcement officer.
