Have you ever seen a Goshen City Council member getting tazed by the Police Department?
Well, “Goshen’s Night Out,” in partnership with August’s First Fridays event, will give you the opportunity, according to Goshen Police Detective Kevin Miller.
“Councilman Jeremy Stutsman will be receiving an exposure from a Taser,” Miller said Friday. “He said he’d be glad to be in the demonstration.”
While being tasered is not on the top of his “fun” list, Stutsman said he hopes his participation will bring out a large crowd to the “Night Out,” an event that hopes to educate locals on available emergency resources and departments.
