Tulsa, Okla. - An accused rapist was tased on Friday while in court thanks to the help of a new device.
Tulsa deputies say Ernest Padillow is accused of punching his own lawyer in the face as he walked over to the bench to testify. The lawyer was said to have been punched multiple times.
A nearby deputy confronted Padillow, but he wasn't going to calm down without some persuasion.
Deputies have started using Stun-Cuffs, and when activated, act a lot like a taser.
Padillow was wearing one on his leg. The deputy activated his device, but that didn't slow him down. So, deputies activated the Stun-Cuff twice more and Padillow was then put into cuffs.
The lawyer wasn't seriously harmed.
Padillow will now face new charges in addition to two counts of first-degree rape of a victim under the age of 14.
He remains in the Tulsa County Jail.
