Suspect Causes Cop To Stun Himself

CHICAGO (CBS) – A suspect caused a Chicago Police officer to shoot himself with his own stun gun as he arrested the woman last week.

A judge ordered Irene Bramwell, 56, held on $40,000 bond Sunday. She is charged with resisting arrest, aggravated battery to a police officer, and criminal trespass.

Police say she was caught trying to break into a building in the 5500 block of South Nottingham Avenue on Friday.

The officer used his stun gun on Bramwell, but she allegedly continued to resist arrest and the officer accidentally shot himself.

No one was seriously hurt.
