Westland police say Raymurez Brown had grabbed his 2-month-old son last Friday after officers told him they were arresting him for assault, property damage and outstanding warrants.
Jedrusik said in a statement that the use of the stun gun while Brown “was holding the child, was a questionable decision. We are all thankful that the child was not injured.”READ MORE: Tillson Street's Halloween Displays Draws Thousands
