Cops in Fredericksburg, VA, used a stun gun on 36-year-old Lantz Day for 42 seconds.
The incident was caught on tape by a witness and subsequently uploaded to YouTube:
At the beginning of the video, police are seen talking to a belligerent-seeming man, Lantz Day, lying on the sidewalk. Day then stands up and tries to flee the scene.
In an effort to stop him, a police officer uses a stun gun for an astounding 42 consecutive seconds. The entire time, Day can be heard screaming in pain while volts pass through his body.
