A cigarette on the ground led to a taser to the genitals.
A Los Angeles County man claims sheriff deputies tasered him in the sensitive area after his family got into an argument with the officers over cigarette thrown onto the ground.
Daniel Johnson, 26, filed a lawsuit against the department last month, according to NBC Southern California.
In the lawsuit, the family claims a deputy sheriff knocked on the door of Johnson's family's home in Altadena a day after Christmas when an officer informed Johnson his 58-year-old father would be issued a $1,000 ticket for littering after he threw a cigarette on the ground.
Johnson, who could not be reached for comment Monday, asked to pick up the cigarette butt for his father, who suffers from nerve damage in his hands and is prone to dropping things, the lawsuit states.
