WOSU (NPR Columbus) reported recently that a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is suing the Columbus police department after a July 7, 2020 incident in which Columbus police officers handcuffed and tazed him. The entire incident was caught on body cam.
According to the suit, the ATF agent was trying to confiscate an illegally-held firearm when the suspect called 911 and the dispatcher sent officers Joseph Fihe and Kevin Winchell.
