A trooper with Louisiana State Police, who was tazed by a fellow trooper during a traffic stop, is now unemployed.

Sheldon Perkins was fired after being charged with DWI, battery of a police officer, resisting an officer, reckless operation, and improper lane usage.

Officials say Perkins was pulled over September 27th for speeding and when police tried to arrest him, Perkins attempted to flee the scene.

The trooper on site then used a Tazer on Perkins and eventually took him into custody where he currently awaits trial.
