    Inexperience by Police officers led to a man being tasered three times and twice blasted with pepper spray ... after breaching his bail in Auckland in October 2018

    Inexperience by Police officers led to a man being tasered three times and twice blasted with pepper spray ... after breaching his bail in Auckland in October 2018


    But the Independent Police Conduct Authority has found it was justified.

    Authority chair Judge Colin Doherty says the acting sergeant was new to the supervisory role, and the members of the team were also inexperienced.

    He says it caused the man to be improperly handled.

    He says if the man was better handled, the use of pepper spray and multiple taserings may not have been necessary.
