COLWYN, Pa. (CBS) — A police officer from Colwyn Borough, Delaware County, has been arrested after a tasing incident involving a juvenile a few weeks ago.
The Delaware County District Attorney’s office arrested officer Trevor Parham (right) on charges of simple assault and official oppression after taking a juvenile into custody on April 24th.
Parham put a teenager into a holding cell that night and handcuffed the boy’s hands behind his back. His feet were also shackled and cuffed to the leg of the bench where the boy was sitting.
The affidavit says that when the teen began kicking at the cell, Parham tased him.
Parham admitted to detectives that he also texted a fellow officer saying, “got tased in the cell LOL.”
Parham is now free on $25,000 bond. The investigation is continuing.
