A stunned passer by filmed the officers confronting 63-year-old Judah Adunbi - who works to smooth relations between police and the black community - and ask for his name. But when the indignant grandfather refuses and tries to enter his home officers shout "Taser" and shoot the electric gun at his face. Mr Adunbi, one of the founders of the Independent Advisory Group set up by the police with the BME community in Bristol, then falls to the ground. Embarrassed police chiefs have admitted the local community in Easton, Bristol - and the BME community as a whole - would "have concerns" about the incident.

Bristol: Ras Adunbi gets tasered in the face over mistaking him for a wanted man


Police Taser their own race relations adviser in Bristol

Adunbi told on Friday how he had suffered sleepless nights since the incident. He also claimed he went through a similar ordeal in 2007 in another case of mistaken identity by police.

Police later confirmed there had been a previous incident involving Adunbi. A spokesman said: “We can confirm that Mr Adunbi was awarded compensation following an incident in 2009. Taser was not deployed regarding this incident.”

Adunbi said he was returning home from a walk with his pet dog Hazel when he encountered the officers. He said: “I was just finishing my walk and coming home. Police were driving up the road and caught a glimpse of me. One of the officers came right in my face. They insisted on trying to antagonise me. I started to see red. I felt frightened and terrified because of what happened previously.”
