Police tasered diabetic - because they thought he was a suicide bomber

UK Daily Mail

A man who slipped into a diabetic coma on the top deck of a bus has described how he was used for electric stun gun "target practice" after police mistook him for a suicide bomber.

Innocent Nicolas Gaubert was shot twice with a Taser gun in what he said was a chilling precursor to the death of Jean Charles de Menezes in London just over a week later.

Mr Gaubert was on his way home from work in Leeds city centre, West Yorks, when he suffered a hypoglycaemic fit and was found slumped in his seat by the bus driver at the end of the route in Headingley, Leeds.

Police were called and two officers, who had been issued with Tasers just a fortnight earlier, boarded the empty bus and used the weapon twice on Mr Gaubert after he failed to respond to instructions.

He said he was then handcuffed and bundled into a police van and was only taken to hospital after he came round and started to shout that he was ill and needed medical attention.
