(KNIGHTSTOWN) - The police chief of a small Indiana town is hoping to raise $9,000 for a new squad car by getting shot by a stun gun.
A detective will use a Taser on Knightstown Police Chief Danny Baker and another town official at an event today in the town's middle school gym.
Baker concedes his fundraising gambit is a bit extreme but he says his department desperately needs to update its fleet of vehicles. Only one of its four squad cars was in working order on Monday.
It won't be the first time that Baker has attempted the stunt. He was also shot by a stun gun about five years ago to raise $500 for new equipment.
