The St. Paul police union is defending the three officers who used a stun gun on a man who was sitting in a downtown skyway.
The president of the St. Paul Police Federation says the officers acted "responsibly, respectfully and in accordance with the high professional standards we expect from our members."
Chris Lollie says he was sitting in the skyway waiting to pick up his children when security guards called police and said he'd been sitting in a private area. The 28-year-old recorded the encounter, in which police used a stun gun on him despite his protests that he'd done nothing wrong.
Police Federation President Dave Titus said Saturday that Lollie refused "numerous lawful orders for an extended period of time."
Lollie posted his cellphone video online last week.
