ROCKLAND (AP) – Five Maine deputies have been reprimanded for using a Taser on a sheriff’s deputy during a bachelor party in Knox County.

Maine prosecutors launched an investigation after video surfaced of the incident in which a deputy was jolted with a Taser, then hogtied and paraded around town in the back of a pickup on Labor Day weekend in 2007.

On the video, the groom-to-be, who’s now a state trooper, drops to the ground after being Tasered. Then the other men bind him and cover him with oil and feathers.

No criminal charges were filed. The Bangor Daily News learned about the reprimands after filing a Freedom of Information request.
