KENOSHA, Wis. - The Kenosha police chief has been ordered to review an officer's questionable use of a Taser against a man in July.
The Kenosha Police and Fire Commission made that decision in a closed session Tuesday.
Commission President Ronald Frederick said the panel gave Chief John Morrissey 90 days to report back on his findings.
Both Frederick and a Kenosha Police Department spokesman said it will be up to Morrissey to determine how to conduct the review.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported a squad car video shows a Kenosha officer deploying the stun gun against an unarmed man within seconds of arriving to a call about two men fighting. The man hit with the Taser fell straight backward.
The officer's written report does not match what's seen on the video.
