Police Officer Found Not Guilty After Tasing Unresponsive Native American Man 28 Times - Mic: On Aug. 15, 2014, Sotherland, 33, was caught on video repeatedly tasing an intoxicated man named Jeffrey Eagle Bull. The Associated Press reported Bull, then 32, had drank a gallon of vodka.

Bull was not seriously injured in the August 2014 incident.
