Knightstown police chief shot with Taser raises $800 cash

KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. — A police chief of a small eastern Indiana who was shot by a stun gun at a fundraising event to buy a new squad car says he raised $800.79 in cash and received a $25,000 pledge from a Texas company.

Knightstown Police Chief Danny 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. He says he may be able to get a second car.

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 as hard they could.
