ksl.com - Man Tased for Refusing to Sign Speeding Ticket
ksl.com - State Probe Clears Trooper in Taser Incident

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah trooper who used a Taser to subdue a stubborn motorist acted reasonably, officials said Friday after investigating an incident that has been widely viewed on YouTube.

Trooper Ron Gardner remains on leave, primarily for his safety after numerous anonymous threats, said Supt. Lance Davenport of the Utah Highway Patrol.

Gardner twice zapped Jared Massey with a Taser when the driver walked away and refused to sign a speeding ticket on Sept. 14.

The incident was recorded on Gardner's dashboard camera. Massey filed a public-records request and posted the video on YouTube, which says it has been viewed more than 1 million times.

This is great news. It's clear from the video that the guy wasn't obeying the trooper's orders and he payed for it. The only person he should be complaining to is himself for being such an ass.
