VICTORIA, Texas (AP) — The lawyer for a Texas police officer fired for using a stun gun on a 76-year-old man says there was "nothing unreasonable" about using that level of force during a traffic stop that was captured on dashboard camera video. Robinson stopped Pete Vasquez for an expired vehicle inspection sticker, and video captured Robinson grabbing Vasquez's arm and pushing him onto the police cruiser. A criminal investigation into the traffic stop was completed by the Texas Rangers, who turned their findings over to local prosecutors for review.
