A man claiming an officer used his taser when it wasn't necessary sued the city, but after almost six hours of deliberations, a jury ruled against the man. They decided Officer Marsh Blackmore did not use excessive force when he tased LJ McCallan during a 2006 traffic stop. McCallan had asked for $20,000 for medical bills and mental anguish. McCallan says he'll appeal this case as far as he can.
"There's a lot about this that didn't come out right and just for the jury to come out and decide unanimous against what's so wrong, it's been a problem in Lubbock for a long time now, it's time to do something about it, someone to stand up to the city of Lubbock and if it takes me, little old me to do it, then so be it," says McCallan.
Blackmore's attorneys say he's grateful for Tuesday's verdict.
