YOUNG GIRL tasered by police thought to be youngest in the UK to have been hit with a 50,000 V taser by police.

According to The Sun a young girl of only 10 years old has been tasered by police at a flat after she threatened her mother. It is believed that the girl was in possession of weapons when she was hit with a 50,000 V electric stun gun by police.

Allegedly the girl was threatening her businesswoman mother with both a hammer and garden shears at a flat which is in a private and gated estate, and the girl is thought to be the youngest person in the UK to ever have been tasered by police.

A source for The Sun explained that, “Police were confronted by the girl holding a weapon and in an extremely agitated state.

“An officer yelled at the girl to drop the weapon and when she didn’t comply, a Taser was used on her.”

The matter is being investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct after a complaint was made over the event.

Former Met detective Mick Neville said, “The use of a Taser on a primary school-aged child is extremely rare and disturbing.”

He also went on to add that, “A weapon like a hammer or shears in the hands of a 10-year-old could be as deadly as in the hands of an adult.”
