Top 7 'Shocking' Taser Incidents

The Tase Heard 'Round the World

It's arguably the most famous use of a Taser. University of Florida student Andrew Meyer yelled out "Don't tase me bro!" as he was tackled by university police during a September 2007 speaking engagement by U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.

Meyer had rankled the crowd by refusing to stop firing questions at the senator, including whether or not he'd been a member of the Yale secret society Skull and Bones.

Meyer's tasering prompted a student protest at the University of Florida and the then 21-year-old became a viral hero after video of the incident hit the Internet. "Don't tase me bro!" became a popular rallying cry and an instant pop culture staple.

The officers, according to the AP, were eventually cleared of any wrongdoing.

The "Don't tase me bro!" video has nearly 4 million views on YouTube.
