  • Virginia cop resigns after using Taser, pepper spray on possible stroke victim

    A Virginia police officer resigned amid claims of excessive force when he used a Taser and pepper-sprayed a man who was suffering from a medical emergency, according to police accounts and newly released body cam video.

    Fredericksburg Police Officer Shaun Jergens stepped down May 14, 10 days after he confronted wrong-way driver David Washington, 34, in a suspected hit-and-run crash.

    But Washington had actually suffered a stroke, an unnamed source told WTOP.

    While Jergens has denied any wrongdoing, Capt. Rick Pennock admitted Friday the officer used excessive force.
