Police Officer Faces Charges In Shooting Handcuffed Man


SPRING GROVE (AP) – PA State Police officials have charged a police officer who says he meant to use his stun gun when he shot a handcuffed man in the leg. Charges were filed against Southwestern Regional Police Officer Stuart Harrison – six months after the shooting at a bank in Spring Grove, York County. The 56-year-old faces a second-degree misdemeanor charge of simple assault. Harrison’s attorney characterized the shooting as accidental, but says he needs to review the charging documents. Southwestern Regional Police say Harrison was placed on unpaid leave until further notice. Police say Harrison wounded the 33-year-old man while attempting to arrest him.
