Shocking new bodycam footage captures the moment an irate Louisiana cop repeatedly zaps a 67-year-old man with a Taser, taunting the man by telling him to scream.

“Scream again,” Police Officer Nolan Dehon is heard telling Izell Richardson during the encounter in Port Allen last month. “Go ahead, scream. Scream again.”

When Richardson, who is handcuffed, yells for help from the back of the police cruiser, Dehon zaps him twice, KMOV-TV reported.

The 45-minute video shows Dehon still arguing with Richardson at the stationhouse — even as the elderly victim is being taken to the hospital.

“He said, ‘if you holler one more time then I’m going to pop you again,’ and he put it right to my heart and it went, pow, and I went out,” Richardson told the station. “Something’s got to be done.”

The cop has since been suspended without pay, and faces felony charges of malfeasance in office and aggravated battery, KMOV said.

Richardson was never charged with a crime, and Dehon faces a May 5 hearing.

The March 27 hearing unfolded after Richardson broke a window at the home he shares with his sister because he lost his key, WAFB-TV reported.

Cops responded to the home, where Richardson is seen on the footage sitting on the front porch while Dehon points the Taser at him.

“Come out of there before I light you up,” the cop is heard saying.

“You don’t have to handle me rough” Richardson replies.

He’s then handcuffed and placed in the back of the police car, where he yells for help before he’s confronted by Dehon, who tases him twice in 10 seconds.

Dehon and another cop are heard discussing possible charges against Richardson once they determine the broken window is in his own house.

“So now, yeah, this is disturbing the peace with him doing all of that hollering.”
