According to reports, alcoholic beverages were consumed at a party at a residence.

On that date, at a house party, two employees engaged in “horseplay,” which led to a physical struggle and restraint of an employee using a county-issued Taser, according to a report. A child briefly held the Taser, and video of the scene was uploaded to social media.
Deputy Juan Macias also received a 30-day suspension for that incident, according to BCSO documents.
