Taser bust a shocker

`The Ottawa Police Firearms Task Force yesterday swooped down on a Navan Rd. homeowner suspected of having a cache of illegal weapons, shot him and his dog with a Taser and left without finding any weapons.

Yvon Richer says he was returning from an early-morning snowmobile ride on his 50-acre property in the city’s southeast end at around 9:15 a.m. when a vehicle pulled into the driveway and a voice behind him screamed, “Get on the ground!”

He looked back at a police officer with his weapon drawn and as many as 40 others, some of them in tactical gear, lining the street.’
