A "clumsy" French cop is facing discliplinary measures after accidentally tasering a 15-year-old schoolkid, TF1 News reports.

The unnamed gendarme was demonstrating the electric enforcer to youngsters at a "career day" in Dole, Jura, on 28 January, when he zapped his victim's leg. The discharge earned the lad a night in hospital "under observation", but he was reportedly none the worse for his ordeal.

The lieutenant colonel of the Jura gendarmerie said of his ham-fisted subordinate: "We accept that this was a mistake, and he'll be disciplined for discharging the weapon when he shouldn't have." ®
