...The dashcam video, captured Sept. 2  outside an East Market Street bar shows Patrolman Richard Kovach using a taser multiple times on Heidi Gill, twice while she was in handcuffs. The last jolt caused her to fall to the pavement where she was knocked unconscious. Before that, Gill is seen on the tape trying to kick out the rear window of the cruiser [a.k.a. 'drunk'?]. ... Kovach was given a 60-day unpaid suspension for his actions involving Gill and the arrest.[LINK]
