A Shreveport police officer has been caught on camera tasing a man. Now that man wants justice.

Exclusive surveilance video shows of Carnado Brown getting tased by a Shreveport police officer.

Brown says he was working the door at Kokopelis' nightclub on July first. Police at first thought he was a customer trying to slip in, then Officer Ryan Robinson came out of the group and, without warning, tased him.

The video shows the officer look around to make sure fellow officers aren't watching. They weren't, but the camera was.

The police department suspended Robinson for 45 days, but no criminal charges were filed.

Police spokesperson Kacee Hargrave won't discuss personnel matters, but we have learned that Robinson has since served his suspension and is back to patrol. But it's Brown's understanding he's not patroling the downtown nightclub district.
