“Have you lost your mind?” WWMT anchor Jeff Varner asked reporter Aaron Baskerville as he threw to his segment on taser use.

In covering the growing debate in Michigan about legalizing tasers, Baskerville decided that he would get stunned by one on-camera to illustrate the power that the non-lethal weapons have (video above).

The taser hit was originally supposed to be for five seconds but Baskerville, buckling from the shock, yelled for the officials to stop after two.
