Officer cleared after using Taser on suspect

Thames Valley Police have cleared an officer of misconduct after he used a taser on a "compliant" suspect, it has been revealed.

The officer discharged the taser when responding to reports of a man in possession of a sword, during an incident in Newbury, Berkshire, in 2015.

The man, who has not been named, said he had been standing still at the time and did not have a sword. He complained to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

The police watchdog ruled the tasered man had been shown on CCTV to be compliant and not in possession of the weapon. They directed Thames Valley Police to hold a tribunal.

At a meeting last year, the officer was found not to have committed misconduct in using the Taser and when giving his account of the incident.
