Muskogee Police Accused of Taser, Pepper Spray Incident at Hospital

Posted: Updated:

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - Two Muskogee police officers are under investigation after allegations that they used a stun gun and pepper spray on a woman handcuffed to a hospital bed.

Cpl. Pedro Zardeneta says the department's internal affairs division is investigating whether the officers were justified in their use of non-lethal force.

The Muskogee Phoenix reports (http://is.gd/DHLqFr ) that Christina Boylan was shackled to a bed at Muskogee Regional Medical Center on Nov. 6 when the officers allegedly used the stun gun and pepper spray.

Authorities say Boylan was taken to the hospital after she reportedly barricaded herself in her house with a gun.

Her sister, Alisa Wren, says officers used a Taser twice while Boylan was in the hospital bed.

Muskogee police say the two officers, whose names weren't released, remain on active duty.
