Media outlets including New York magazine, the New York Daily News, and the Associated Press reported this week that a Florida police officer shot a woman with a Taser and later apologized with a cake that read “Sorry I Tased You.”
In fact, the cake apology stems from an incident in 2014, when a police officer accidentally tased his coworker in the hand.
"I go to assist by grabbing on to the male at the exact same time Josh deployed his Taser," Ross said. "Taser probes enter my left hand and I had a two second 'ride.'"
"I thought the cake was amazing," Ross said. "He truly felt horrible about the situation."
