Baker said, "I was just crying. I guess he got mad because I was crying or something, then he just took it out and just tased me."
A police spokesman says the officer stated the girl was physically getting involved and would not back away, but Dejamon and her mother deny that.
"He should have had enough control to tell her to get back instead of pulling out his gun, I guess he was nervous or whatever, and tasing people," said Bratton.
The police spokesman says he believes the officer's actions were justified, but he admits it's a unique situation.
