Georgetown County (SC) Detention Center correctional officer Dondiedra Anderson has been arrested (and fired) for unlawful use of a taser on an inmate. This incident reportedly began when an inmate said she needed to use the restroom, claiming that the toilet in her cell was broken. Anderson opened the cell, removed the inmate and went into the cell to assess the situation. The inmate then closed the cell door locking Anderson in the cell [must. not. laugh.].
Once Anderson was freed by another correctional officer, Anderson grabbed the inmate and gave her a good, solid tasering. Yeah - that'll learn her.
Anderson is currently being held at the detention center awaiting a bond hearing. There have been no reports on the condition of the toilet in Anderson's cell. [LINK]
Update - Anderson was released late on Friday (3 April 2009) on a personal recognizance bond. [LINK]
