The Man was ‘Belligerent’ About His Innocence

From WREG.com:

[Colby Taylor] was taken to the county jail where he tried to explain the two warrants had already been served.

In fact he was telling the truth. But through a computer error jailers had not been notified.

That’s when he claims he was pushed around and maced by someone in uniform. Taylor said “He went on this side first and then he made sure he got this side and then after he did that, the man just started choking me, choking me. I could feel somebody was tasing me and tasing me.”
