    2 Colorado Men Exchange Taser Shots in Confrontation Over Parking Boot Monday, May 19, 2008


    BOULDER, Colo.— It wasn't exactly pistols at 30 paces, but police say a security company supervisor and a restaurateur shot each other with Tasers in a "bonehead" confrontation over parking.
    Officers said neither man needed medical attention after the Saturday confrontation, but Harvey Epstein, co-owner of Mamacitas restaurant, was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and using a stun gun.

    A police report said Epstein and Casey M. Dane, a supervisor for Colorado Security Services Inc., were arguing over a metal boot that one of Dane's guards had clamped on a wheel of a van parked behind Mamacitas.

    Dane told police he was afraid Epstein was going to hit him with a 2-foot-long pair of bolt cutters. Epstein told police he had only tried to remove the boot with the bolt cutters and hadn't threatened anyone with them.

    Epstein told police Dane put his hand on a holstered pistol and threatened to shoot him. Dane told The Associated Press by telephone that he did put his hand on the holstered pistol but never threatened to shoot Epstein.

    Both men drew Tasers.

    "They shot each other," Police Sgt. Pat Wyton told the Camera newspaper. "It was just kind of a bonehead deal."

    The guard claimed the van, owned by a Mamacitas employee, was on property he was hired to patrol. The van owner denied that.

    Epstein, 36, told the AP in a phone interview Sunday he took out his Taser only after Dane pointed his at him and his mother, who was also outside. Epstein also said Dane repeatedly told him he was a police officer and that failing to comply with his orders was a federal offense, allegations that Dane denies.

    This is why I hate tasers. They are not taken seriously.

    Did they hit each other or miss with their only shot? The article doesn't specify. Not that its important, but I wonder anyway.

    It must be an unusual event to witness.

    Read about it in the Colorado Springs Gazette, great, conservative newspaper with strong editorial stance on the 2nd Amendment. My conclusion: two dickheads getting what they deserved. That the one guy was packing but went to a frigging tazer, really sums it up. Morons.
