Tribal Officer Fired After Stun Gun Incident

August 22, 2014, 10:26 AM

RAPID CITY, SD -

An Oglala Sioux police officer has been fired for improperly using a stun gun, and the police chief's job might also be in jeopardy.

Tribal Councilman Garfield Steele says Cpl. Becki Sotherland was fired Thursday for an incident last week in which she used a Taser several times on a man lying on the ground. A passer-by shot video and posted it online, drawing attention to the incident.

Steele says a Tribal Council committee is recommending Chief Ron Duke be fired for lack of leadership. Duke says he'll fight any effort to remove him.

Sotherland is being investigated by the FBI and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. A telephone listing for her couldn't be found and it wasn't immediately clear if she has an attorney.
