Cop uses Taser on another in Mass. off-duty spat

HAVERHILL, MA Daron Fraser lives in Raymond, N.H., and is a patrolman in Lawrence, Mass. Joshua Wallar, of Methuen, Mass., is a patrolman in Kingston, N.H.

Authorities say Fraser and his pregnant girlfriend were having a dispute late Tuesday night in Haverhill (HAY'-vruhl), when Wallar intervened and subdued Fraser with his department-issued Taser.

Fraser was charged with two assault counts. Wallar was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Both pleaded not guilty.

Wallar's lawyer says his client believed his intervention was justified. Fraser's lawyer says the dispute was overblown.
