A former Missouri police officer who deployed a stun gun on a teen until the boy suffered a cardiac arrest was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison, officials said.
Timothy Runnels pleaded guilty last fall to violating the constitutional rights of then-17-year-old Bryce Masters during the September 2014 traffic stop in the Kansas City suburb of Independence, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
His plea deal also required him to admit he deprived the minor of his civil rights and injured him when he dropped the handcuffed teen face-first on to the ground, the feds said.
