An Avon and Somerset Police officer will appear in court in August to face a charge of common assault after an incident in which 63-year-old grandfather and race relations worker Judah Adunbi was Tasered in Bristol.
PC Claire Boddie, 47, is due to appear at Taunton Magistrates Court on Monday 14 August.
The incident happened in Colston Road, Easton on Saturday 14 January 2017.

The IPCC says the other officer involved in the incident will not face criminal charges.
