I get it DWI.. fine that sucks.. but the stun gun.. ? No need for it.. and then on top of it.. resisting, requiring officers to physically restrain him..?? Really.. what did you think would happen,, your in handcuffs, they police know your name, do you think they were going to say, "ok guy, you dont want to get in the car you dont have too, although your DWI and have an illegal weapon??"... really , your in a situation to which you have no control of.. Now you may have just crippled your good name..

To Hdm4: If you are who you say you are just add it to your routine and get a few laughs... Life is funny that way. You will be a better person for what happened. Remember, laughter is the best medicine.
