"He was just playing around. He [used the Taser] on my leg three times, then again. It left star marks on my body," White said at the meeting.
White said she told him to stop and smacked at the Taser. Afterward, White said Smith told her not to tell Bob Stone, an East Bank councilman. White said she was pregnant when the incident occurred.
Candice White's mother also said she saw the incident.
Smith told Council members that Candice White had asked if she could get a Taser. He told her that he was trained to certify her in its use, and part of the training involved getting shocked with the Taser. He said she asked to be Tasered, and he had the Taser's power setting very low. He said he didn't know she was pregnant.
A young man from the East Bank Volunteer Fire Department also told the Council in September that he was Tasered by Smith.
"He Tasered me because it was my birthday," the firefighter said, adding that his back was turned when Smith used the Taser on him.
"It didn't hurt me. I had no problem with it; it didn't hurt," he said.
