(NBC) — A 12-year-old girl has wounds in her chest and stomach after she was tased by a police officer inside a St. Louis Victoria’s Secret Wednesday afternoon. Authorities speaking to the New York Daily News say the girl “physically interceded” as a St. Louis County police officer attempted to serve an arrest warrant related to traffic tickets in her mother’s name.
You’re joking – traffic tickets???!!!
The preteen Dejamon Baker denies that she physically interfered with the officer.
“I was just crying,” Baker says. “I guess he got mad because I was crying or something, then he just took it out and just tased me.”
