A Thurston County sheriff's deputy tased a man twice early this morning after he interrupted the man having sex with a woman outside a home in the 14000 block of Vail Cutoff Road, according to the sheriff's department.
Patrick Bergin, 21, of Yelm, was placed under arrest on suspicion of third-degree assault, Thurston County Chief Criminal Deputy James Chamberlain said.
According to Chamberlain:
The incident began around 2 a.m. when a deputy was responding to a complaint of loud music outside a residence on Vail Cutoff Road. As the patrol car approached the residence, its lights passed over a couple having sex on the lawn.
The couple began to put their clothes on, and the deputy approached them to ask for identification. The woman who was with Bergin screamed and tried to run away. Bergin approached the deputy, and ignored commands to sit down. Both the man and the woman appeared "highly intoxicated."
The deputy believed that Bergin was taking an aggressive stance, and believed that he would be assaulted, so he shot the barbs from his Taser at Bergin. Bergin ripped the barbs of the Taser from his chest, and continued to approach the deputy. As Bergin continued to approach the deputy, the deputy reloaded the Taser and shot it again. The Taser's barbs struck Bergin in the arm. Bergin was subdued and placed under arrest for third-degree assault.
Chamberlain said Tuesday that it is very unusual for a person to be able to rip the barbs from a Taser off of his or her body while receiving an electrical jolt
Lock them in their house for two months as punishment.
Fire water can do that to a guy . . .
Twice eh? wow! Good for him....I’d stop after just one tasing:)
I guess he won’t be worrying about a 4-hour erection.
I’m not quite seeing where he did anything to “assault” anyone - even if he did “advance”.
When did the English language become gibberish?
Wonder if he told the deputy that he was next,
electrifying sex ping
I find this incident shocking.
So who was the third degree assault he was charged with.The woman or the police officer.
The story leaves a lot to be desired. The story say’s she tried to get away, did she or didnt she.? Maybe the guy was only trying to cover her escape. The story says it is unusual that a perp can tear out the taser barbs while being tasered, obviously they dont know the fired up nature of a guy who is about to orgasm and is then interrupted.
“Oohhhh...Hit me again Officer...hit me again...”
Probably women cops getting a thrill!
He got cop-blocked.
Do you remember the scene in History of the World Part I where the people are trying to guess the punishment for striking a soldier? ;-P
Lol, No, I don’t remember that movie, but I’ll check it out.
He received stimulation in more ways than one!
An incident like this occurred in the early 70s at the Marine base where I was stationed. At about 2 am the MPs came upon the Staff Sergeant manager of the club on the front lawn going to it with the female Corporal assistant manager. They were so drunk and into what they were doing that taps on the shoulder and repeated verbal admonitions did not phase them. The MPs finally shined their flashlight directly in their eyes and the sergeant jumped up and kept repeating to them “don’t tell my wife”. He was lucky that they didn’t have tasers at the time.
After twitching and convulsing after the first zap, the woman started screaming, “Oooo! Hit him again!”
Woman: “Taze him AGAIN, bro!”
Actually, I'm thinking I should buy a taser in case I run into a couple having sex in public. I could use it on gay pride parade day too.
The dictionary is your friend. Assault is not the same as Battery. Assault can result from the reasonable assumption that one is about to be battered. No gibberish here.
That is one of the stupidest comments that I have seen on this site. I would epect that to be on DU. You sure you are on the right forum?
“expect” not epect. my bad.
Or video phones and the internet. lol
Legally, I guess that’s true. I always get hung up thinking in military terms!
Have a great day, FRiend.
Truthfully I would have no idea except that my son is a police officer and he recently explained the difference to me. Just to be safe I checked the dictionary. He was right. Man, I hate that.
“That is one of the stupidest comments that I have seen on this site. I would epect that to be on DU. You sure you are on the right forum?”
Absolutely. Cops have turned into Tazer-Happy scum. That’s right, I said it.
You can disagree, but that won’t make it not true.
“Truthfully I would have no idea except that my son is a police officer”
Nevermind. I see you have no objectivity. Sorry, it’s still true, but I understand why you’re defensive.
Something is not true merely because you suggest that it is. In adult conversation it is incumbent upon the person who postulates the argument to provide supporting data and cite sources. So, your first comment was juvenile, your second comment was both juvenile and without merit and this comment suggesting that I have no objectivity based on the fact that my son is a cop is speculation at best. Maybe I can’t stand my son and am ashamed that he is a cop. How would you know? You are a buffoon posing as an adult. Shoo.
SEX, LAWNS, AND TASER GUNS....PING!!!
” Maybe I cant stand my son and am ashamed that he is a cop. How would you know? You are a buffoon posing as an adult. Shoo.”
Well I’m sorry that you might be ashamed of your son. I know I am. And, if he carries a tazer, then he is a coward, also. What did the police do before tazers?
I’s seen the clips of unwarranted tazing. I tend to paint with a broad brush. I do not care to search for the three good cops in the country.
Sorry again about your embarrassing son.
You've seen clips?. Well, that right there makes you an expert.
You paint with a broad brush? That just makes you an idiot.
The truth is that I am extremely proud of my son. He is a fine young man who serves his country and his community. Unlike you, someone who likely lives in his mother's basement playing world of warcraft and wondering what it feels like to be a grown man.
So keep making your ignorant, uninformed criticisms and accusations. Smugly tell yourself what an independent thinker you are while convincing yourself that you really got me with your razor sharp repartee (look it up).
The next time that you or a family member or friend are mugged or in an accident or burglarized, hold true to your convictions and refrain from calling the corrupt, blood thirsty police. Any other action on your part would just be hypocritical.
What an orgasm that must have been...
“The next time that you or a family member or friend are mugged or in an accident or burglarized, hold true to your convictions and refrain from calling the corrupt, blood thirsty police.”
Your great son would only show up AFTER an incident. They protect NOONE. They serve NOONE but themselves. I know reserve police that will take off of a 15 dollar/hour job to be a play cop for half the money.
Police are grateful to be paid for what they do. Most would do it for free. Some will even pay to do it. It’s a power trip. And, don’t even try to tell me your son is not on a power trip. It’s not possible, or believable.
Wake up and smell the roses. When has a cop ever prevented any crime? Name it. All they do is react afterward, and find someone to shoot with the tazer. That’s about it.
A cop’s main goal.......find any reason to taze someone.
There are tons of these on youtube. But I bet you have never seen a single one. Cops are cowards if they carry tazers. Period. Tazer happy jackbooted thugs.
