Wyoming Man Proven Wrong About Taser Theory

Police in Wyoming, responding to a domestic violence call, found the man they were looking for, Brian Mattert covered in paint. He warned police that a taser shock and water-based paint together would kill him. So they tased him.

"You see all this water-based paint?" a white latex paint-covered Mattert asked the officers, according to the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle. "You shoot me with that and you'll kill me." The police officers assured Mattert that the paint and taser combination wouldn't kill him, nor would it weaken the juice that was about to fry his allegedly abusive ass. They zapped him twice and cuffed him in the back yard.

The paper adds that the officers had to replace their uniforms after the arrest.
