Surprise, Surprise: BART Cop that Killed Oscar Grant Claims Taser Defense

http://abcnews.go.com/TheLaw/wireStory?id=6772992
The transit officer who shot and killed an unarmed man may have mistakenly pulled his service pistol instead of a stun gun, according to documents filed by his lawyer Friday. Attorney Michael Rains made the argument in urging a judge to grant bail for 27-year-old Johannes Mehserle (yo-HAN’-es MEZ’-ur-lee). Alameda County Superior Court Judge Morris Jacobson later set bail at $3 million. Jacobson said he set the high amount in part because he considered Mehserle a flight risk after the former officer fled to Nevada during the initial investigation.
