SD Police Officer Cleared Of Using Excessive Force

October 14, 2011, 9:41 AM

CANTON, SD - A jury has cleared a South Dakota police officer of wrongdoing in a civil lawsuit over alleged excessive force.

Canton Officer Adam Dupic used a Taser and pepper spray to subdue 56-year-old David Twedt on May 31, 2009, after confronting him about a possible drinking violation. Twedt later sued.  Twedt's attorney said Dupic's use of electric shocks over what amounted to a petty offense was excessive. Dupic's attorney said Twedt could have avoided being Tased by complying with Dupic's commands to stop.

Dupic was never reprimanded for his actions and remains an officer with the Canton Police Department.  Twedt now lives in Inwood, Iowa.
