The Denver Post: An Idaho Springs police officer issued no warnings to a 75-year-old man before shocking him with a Taser and later placing his knee on the unconscious man’s neck, newly released body camera footage of the incident shows.

The 75-year-old, Michael Clark, was living independently at the time of the incident but now resides in a nursing facility after suffering health complications following the incident, according to his attorney, Sarah Schielke.

Schielke released the body camera footage Thursday after receiving it from the district attorney’s office.
