Key West cop accidentally Tasers himself

A dog named Buddy stands accused of biting a Key West police officer -- and apparently being responsible for that officer accidentally firing his Taser into his own leg during an Aug. 24 incident on South Street.

"I drew my department issued X26 Taser as the dog jumped up and bit into my right forearm, causing the Taser to deploy into my left leg," Officer Curtiss Richardson wrote in his report.

It was a significant bite," police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. Richardson was treated at Lower Keys Medical Center.

Buddy, a 5-year-old mutt with some pit-bull characteristics, was expected to be released from the Stock Island animal shelter today after a 10-day mandatory quarantine.

Buddy's owner, Aaron P. Strickland, 28, was arrested on two felony counts of battery on a police officer and obstructing an officer. "They ripped me out of my house," Strickland said Thursday. "I'm dumbfounded. I didn't do anything."
