Police Chief Shot With Stun Gun For A Good Cause

KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (November 28, 2013) Danny Baker, the chief of police in the small town of Knightstown, Ind., allowed himself to be shot with a stun gun at fundraising event to buy a new squad car and raised about $800 in cash.

He also received a $25,000 pledge from a Texas company.

Baker says he's been receiving calls from all over the country and expects to collect more money.

His goal was to raise $9,000 so the town of about 2,100 people about 25 miles east of Indianapolis could lease a new squad car.

Now he says he might be able to get a second car, as well.

He says the feeling of being hit with 50,000 volts of low-amp electricity Wednesday night felt like someone hitting him in the back of the head repeatedly.
