This footage reveals the moment a police officer sent a naked suspect crashing to the floor with a Taser gun.

PC Lee Birch, 30, zapped Daniel Dove with the 50,000-volt weapon after he threw his dirty underpants in his face.

Mr Dove, 23, had been arrested for being drunk and disorderly outside a nightclub and was ordered to strip naked for a search once inside a police cell.

But he felt ‘humiliated’ at the way he was being treated and hurled his boxers in a ‘split second’ fit of temper.

PC Birch, who responded by immediately drawing his Taser, was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and misconduct in public office.

A jury took just 60 minutes to acquit the Wiltshire police officer on both charges at Bristol Crown Court.

But despite a judge ruling the horrifying footage could now be released to the media, Patrick Geenty, Wiltshire’s Chief Constable, objected.

The video was later leaked to ITV West Country by a concerned member of the public.
