Police chief tased for good cause

KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. -- A police chief of a small Eastern Indiana town was shot by a stun gun on purpose to raise money for the department.


The fundraiser was to buy a new squad car.


Chief Danny Baker raised $800 and has been taking donations from all over the country.


His goal is to raise $9,000.


Residents of the town came out to watch him get shot by the stun gun.


"I give thanks to all the donations we really appreciate it and I feel this is a good example of how a small town community of people stick together," said Baker.


Baker said the feeling of being hit with 50,000 volts of low-amp electricity felt like someone hitting him in the back of the head as hard as they could.
