Avon and Somerset PC Claire Boddie, 47, is set to appear before Taunton magistrates on 14 August.
The force referred itself to the police watchdog after Judah Adunbi, 63, was Tasered in Bristol on 14 January.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) sent evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which said it is in the public interest to charge.
I wonder if this would be the case had the fellow she’d tasered not been a minority?
At any rate, I don’t blame her as much as the idiots and diversity culture that gave her a uniform and taser in the first place.
