Camera shots of the body were recorded the moment a Florida Sheriff deputy deployed his taser just 10 seconds after arriving on the scene of an alleged attack.
The Orange County Sheriff & # 39; s Office released a video on Monday, September 26, 2018, after an internal investigation concluded that Deputy Ayler Cruz did not abide by the Department's use of force policies.
Cruz responded to a call about a possibly worsened battery in a home in Orlando when a man walked over to the officer as he stepped out of his patrol car with an anesthetic gun in his hand.
He can hear the man say: & # 39; You're going to be tased. I promise you that. Stand on the floor. & # 39;
Immediately after the man asks: & # 39; What should I stand for on the floor? & # 39; Cruz uses the stun gun.
There was about ten seconds between the moment he got out of the vehicle and when he pulled the trigger, according to his body camera.

The man who was seen in the video, who was not identified, said he did not know why the delegate was sent to the house and claimed that he just wanted to ask the officer what was going on when Cruz started using the taser, causing him to collapse on the ground
The complete interaction from the arrival of the delegate to the man who falls to the ground takes 20 seconds.
When the suspect is seated, Cruz warns: & I'll tell you again. You're gonna be tased again. & # 39;
A woman comes home later and says to Cruz: & I am not trying to file a complaint. I'm just trying to calm him down. & # 39;
The police did not disclose additional details about the incident that led to the assault report.

The man featured in the video, who has not been mentioned, addressed the incident in an interview with News 6 on Monday and said it was the first time he had seen the camera film of the body.
He said he didn't know why the assistant sheriff was being sent home and claimed that he just wanted to ask the officer what was happening.
& # 39; To be honest, some people don't call the police because of things like that, & # 39; he said. & # 39; They just need to be careful who they hire, what they do with situations in which they are accommodated. & # 39;
The man said that he had filed a complaint with the sheriff's office after the incident, but had not heard.
& # 39; If you think it's not right and you know it's not right, don't be afraid to make a complaint, because in the end it is your life that puts you at risk & # 39 ;, said he.
An internal review determined that Cruz & # 39; s & # 39; actions were not in accordance with the policy of Orange County Sheriff & # 39; s Office, which states: & # 39; Personnel will not use more force under any circumstances than is reasonably necessary under the circumstances & # 39 ;.
The deputy, who had been with the department since August 2017, was suspended for 81 hours without payment and, according to the authorities, had to undergo retraining.
& # 39; At the Sheriff & # 39; s Office in Orange County, we keep our delegates to the highest ethical standards, whether on-duty or out-of-service, & # 39; Sheriff John Mina told News 6.
& # 39; We are committed to serving this community with integrity and ensuring that alleged misconduct is thoroughly investigated and that the results of that investigation are made public. & # 39;
