The Knightstown (Ind.) Police Department raised $30,000 for new vehicles, when Chief Danny Baker agreed to a fund-raiser in which he took a hit from a TASER stun gun.
Chief Baker agreed to the unusual approach for raising money because the department now has one working patrol car.
"Budget cuts are so bad. I've been promised police cars for four years and every time they set that money for 'em, something happens and they have to cut them out," Baker told WTHR.
