SIRT investigating tasering of Lunenburg County man

SIRT has been called in to investigate an incident in Lunenburg County.

Two Mounties responded to a call about an agitated man with a knife threatening himself. They arrived at the house in Pleasantville and found the man in his driveway. They arested him, during which he was tasered. Then they took him to hospital with an arm injury. That’s when the Mounties called in the police watchdog agency.
