Ed Herman gets pulled over and tazed by law enforcement! I’m no lawyer, but looks like the Police messed up big time. Video shows Ed Herman standing in place at the hood of his vehicle, in no way resisting arrest, when the police decided to taze him. Fortunatly Ed’s amazing wife caught it all on film. Seems the police also hesistated when his wife asked the officer to provide 3 forms of id (just as Ed did before being tazed). Toward end of the video Ed’s wife catches the officers discussing how many of their cameras may have caught the assault on film. Make sure to watch the whole video.

Check out the incident report underneath the video… doesn’t really match up with what looks to have happened.
