Watch shocking video of cop using Taser and pepper spray against driver who had 'suffered stroke at wheel'

This is the shocking moment a police officer used pepper spray and a Taser - against someone who had already suffered a suspected stroke.
US Shaun Jergens confronted wrong-way driver David Washington after reports of a hit-and-run in Virginia earlier this month, the New York Daily News reports.

Washington had ploughed through a city road sign and eventually struck another car before his Hyundai came to a stop in the middle of an intersection near a university campus.
When officers arrived they found 34-year-old Washington still in his car. He refused to comply with officers' demands to show his hands, police said.
That's when Jergens, the last of three cops to arrive at the scene, promptly took control according to the NYDN.
"It was dispatched via the radio that citizens reported that the suspect was moving around a lot inside of his vehicle,"Jergens said in a statement to the Free Lance-Star.
"I believed that the suspect may be looking for a weapon or looking to conceal a weapon based on this information and the fact that he was believed to be fleeing a felony (hit and run of an occupied vehicle)."
