Deputy tased during Rancho Cordova welfare check | Crime
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - A Sacramento County sheriff's deputy was accidentally tased by a fellow deputy during a welfare inspection at a Rancho Cordova motel on Thursday morning.
Deputies responded to the Motel 6 on Olson Drive around 7:30 a.m. following a report of a person "speaking incoherently about god," said Sacramento County sheriff's deputy Jason Ramos.
The deputies made contact with the individual upon arrival and a scuffle ensued. During the altercation, one of the deputies used their taser to subdue the person, but also accidentally tased the other deputy, said Ramos.
Both deputies were taken to hospital with minor injuries and were medically cleared. The suspect was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries after being checked out by Metro Fire at the scene, Ramos said.
