Two Queensland police officers have been stood down from duty amid allegations they improperly used a Taser.
The two male constables, aged 41 and 31, are the subject of an internal investigation after allegedly using the Taser while off duty.
The pair, from the northern policing region, have been tasked to perform non-operational duties.
A police spokesperson said the behaviour was very irresponsible.
“The officers are the subject of an internal investigation that whilst off duty they improperly used a conducted energy weapon (Taser),” he said.
“In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have undertaken to inform the public when an officer faces serious allegations of misconduct.
“This does not mean that the allegations against the officers have been substantiated.”
This is not vision of the incident, but this is how we imagined it went down:
