WATCH: Video Shows Jailer Use Taser on Inmate Strapped to Chair

POLK COUNTY, Ga – Surveillance video obtained by Channel 2 Action News allegedly shows a Polk County jailer Tasing an inmate who was strapped to a chair.

The inmate, Brandon Coffman, allegedly received burn scars from the incident, which took place in July 2016, Channel 2 reported.

Once the Polk County sheriff saw the video later that year, he fired supervisor Harry Dallas Battle, the man allegedly seen Tasing Coffman, and asked the GBI to investigate, Channel 2 reported.

The GBI charged Battle with two felonies, which a grand jury declined to indict, the news station reported.

Coffman has filed a civil suit against Battle, Channel 2 reported.

“Torture. This is absolutely torture,” Coffman’s attorney Harry Daniels told the news station. “There’s no way around it. It’s torture.”

Jack Browning, the District Attorney for Polk County, told Channel 2 he plans to re-present the criminal case to another grand jury in July.
