What do you get when you have a cop, a stun gun and an unruly 10-year-old girl who doesn’t want to take a shower?

Answer: An FBI investigation.

The Associated Press is reporting that the Ozark, Ark., Mayor Vernon McDaniel and the city Police Chief Jim Noggle announced on Friday that the FBI was investigating a Nov. 11 incident  in which officer Officer Dustin Bradshaw allegedly used a stun gun on a 10-year-old girl.

He was been suspended with pay for a week for not having a video camera attached to his Taster.

The AP reported that the mother had summoned police because her daughter refused to take a shower. The mother supposedly suggested the officer use the stun gun after the girl became violent and verbally combative. He apparently complied with the request.
