Police Officer Hurt At Fresno Fairgrounds

A Fresno police officer is recovering after being hurt by his own Taser at the Big Fresno Fair Friday night.

The officer was dealing with a man who was refusing to take an item out of his pockets at an entry gate when the cop took out his Taser.

At the same time, the man hit the officer and that caused the Taser to slam into the officer's chin.

Another officer then stepped in and took the man down and arrested him.

It turns out the man had some marijuana in his pockets and didn't want to give it up.

Now he's likely facing much more serious charges.
