A 20-year-old man is alleging he was taken to the outskirts of Winnipeg by city police, threatened with a Taser and then mocked as they made him run away. Evan Maud tells the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network that the experience was terrifying. Winnipeg police officials could not be reached for comment and did not respond to emails asking about the allegation. Maud, who is finishing Grade 12, says he had left his brother's house in Winnipeg at 4 a.m. last Friday when an unmarked black police car pulled up beside him on the street.
