A police officer was caught on tape Tasering an apparently mentally ill man showing no signs of resistance.
The video - which was posted on Youtube - shows Robert Denoyelles standing outside a Golden Corral restaurant in Prescott, Texas with his arms in the air.
Filmed from inside the restaurant, the officer can be seen pointing the Taser at Mr Denoyelles before stepping back and firing the weapon.
Speaking to Fox News, Mr Denoyelles' wife Kaite said: 'I thought they had no reason to do it, it was wrong,' says wife Katie Denoyelles.
'He's kind of handicapped… I know lately he's been disoriented.'
According to the officer involved, Mr Denoyelles was asked several times to turn around with his hands in the air before being shot.
A police report states Mr Denoyelles kept referring to three different personalities after his arrest.
At one point he even asked who the charges were for.
He was originally taken in for resisting arrest, but the charge has since been dropped to disorderly conduct.
