Orange County sheriff's deputies repeatedly shocked a handcuffed prisoner with a Taser, even after he had been strapped into a restraint chair, slammed him onto the floor with a "knee drop" and appeared to hit him in the head while he sat passively on a bench, jail videotapes show. The grainy but graphic images from 2006 show Matthew Fleuret, 24, being put into a holding cell at Orange County Jail and held on the floor by at least five deputies, one of whom pulls Fleuret's arms back and sharply up toward his head while others repeatedly shock him with the Taser over a period of about 13 minutes. Fleuret's lawyer says he was hit 11 times with the stun gun during the incident. Experts on the use of force interviewed by The Times suggest the deputies violated widely accepted standards. "It does not look pretty," said Geoffrey Alpert, a University of South Carolina criminology professor who has studied the issue for about 25 years.
