When Miami cops screw up, civilians are typically the ones who wind up getting hurt. But in a previously unrevealed incident from January 4, an utterly boneheaded move wound up injuring one of Miami’s finest. A video clip that began making the rounds on social media today shows two City of Miami cops attempting to arrest an alleged drug dealer and a homeless man accused of trying to buy crack cocaine — and one of the officers apparently wound up tasing himself by accident.
“Oh, my God! He shot himself!” a woman who witnessed the incident says in the video. “I can’t believe that.”
