FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- A former sheriff's deputy who says he was injured by a Taser gun says he was wrongfully terminated and is now suing Davis County.
In April, Ray Lynn Gray says another deputy shocked him with a Taser gun during a training exercise. According to the lawsuit, Gray suffered multiple injuries.
Gray's attorney, Randall Edwards, says Davis County made it difficult for Gray to get well by denying him sick leave and challenging his workers' compensation claims.
Edwards says their case is that Davis County injured Gray, tried to deny him his benefits and then fired him without cause.
In the lawsuit filed Monday, Gray seeks punitive damages equivalent to his loss of income and quality of life.
